    Today may be the last day for this ECO Challenge but the knowledge and practices that we have challenged ourselves to should be carried on beyond this challenge so that we can all do our part to make Earth cleaner again. If every plastic we use and throw have such a large impact to our planet. The same would apply if we each did our part in the clean up!
