    Another ecochallenge that I am taking on (for session 8) is using deck materials that have already been used to make a larger deck instead of keeping more lawn in my backyard. This will mean less water required for watering a lawn.

    For the session 5 and 6 ecochange, I decided to connect with a local non profit. I signed up to volunteer next week with Willamette Riverkeeper and am looking forward to it! I am volunteering next week at Trashy Tuesday to pick up trash along the Eastbank Esplanade. If anyone is interested in volunteering or learning more, click here:
