In December 2018, we were informed that we have only about 12 years (Edit: it’s looking more like 8, recent studies find) left to turn this ship around. So much has to happen politically, but we the people also need to change habits. In January I started posting monthly challenges to introduce some sustainable lifestyle habits for you to try and that may potentially stick with you for life. Lots of little droplets make up the largest ocean.
Are you absolutely unable to do the current challenge? Or maybe you are underwhelmed with the challenge and want an extra one?
