      I'm really excited to see if there's anything I can do to reduce how much water and energy I use. I always think I'm good, but I'm sure I'll find out that I'm horribly wasteful and that I have lots of room for improvement! The Plastic-Free July challenge really changed my understanding of plastic waste and my buying habits, so I'm excited to find more opportunities to engage in more environmentally friendly behaviors! Super excited to learn from everyone else and help the environment!

    I'm excited that there are some new actions for this challenge! I'm going to use this challenge as the added push I needed to start backyard composting. Please let me know if you have any tips! We have a lot of wildlife in the backyard, so I would especially appreciate any tips on not disrupting them or unintentionally creating a new haven for pests :)
