Tyler's Actions

Waste

Skip the Straw

Do at Home

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our waterways. I will keep 2 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill and ocean each day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.

    Just an update; I know the eco challenge has been long gone, but I just wanted to say that I'm very, very glad that New Jersey has banned plastic straws (Unless you specifically ask for them :/). This is a key first step in saving our ecosystem!

    It's the last day of the eco challenge, and I've just completed my last challenge. Honestly, I think I'm going to continue with some of these, even outside of the actual challenge. For instance, there's no real reason to start using plastic straws again since I've been doing just fine without them, and the same goes for my new, healthier sleep schedule.

    Although it has been stormy outside, this morning I took my dog out to go to the bathroom and we both just sort of sat there, because it was actually pretty peaceful and calming outside, with the slight rain and all.

    Sometimes it is difficult to maintain a healthier sleep schedule, because of school throughout the week and early soccer games on the weekends. I'm a light sleeper at best and I have to really force myself to stop whatever I'm doing and go to bed earlier.

    I saved 1 straw at breakfast, 1 at lunch, and 2 at a birthday party tonight. My eco challenge is going well, but I may have overdid my nature challenge, because I am having some difficulties finding the time to sit down and enjoy the sunrise/sunset.

    I completed my eco challenges for today, and also, I've successfully convinced one of my friends to cut down on his plastic water bottle usage! I know it's not either of our eco challenges, but it's still good to help out the environment even outside of the eco challenge.

    Plastic straws have become increasingly common as the eco challenge continues, but I think it's just because now I'm noticing them more. My sleep challenge and plastic straw challenge have been going well.

    Usually, when I'm going out to complete my nature eco challenge to enjoy the sunset/sunrise, I take my dog out with me for a nice little moment of Zen and relaxation.

    It's been getting harder to maintain those extra hours of sleep, but I've been doing great with my main eco challenge for plastic straws.

    I've gotten a lot more sleep because it's the weekend, and I haven't had to refuse many plastic straws either, so it's going well.
