    Question: What did you fix and how did it go? Share a few pics if you can!

    I chose to replace the battery inside my daughter's portable bluetooth speaker. She's had the speaker for about 4 years and the battery life had ended. Rather than get a new speaker I did the research to figure out what new battery to buy and how to replace it. Taking electronics apart that you care about is always nerve wracking since there is always that point of no return where you can't go back so you have to go forward. It turned out great and I spent $18 and 30 minutes of my time rather than the $149 to buy a replacement of the same speaker. I also recycled the battery through my Ridwell service, so nothing went to landfill.

    I've been taking part in the EcoChallenge for the last 5 years. What keeps me coming back is the opportunity to see which of the actions I have taken as part of the challenge have now become unconscious standard practices. I believe subtle shifts like that can make a world of difference. Happy to be here!
