    This eco challenge was a good one for me.  I was able to learn more about food labels/food expiration dates - which will help me with better choices and less waste.  I was also able to take my recycling efforts to the next level - by really looking at what I can recycle and/or reuse.

    I really like using smaller plates for eating meals  It really does help to eat smaller portions!
