Time to Blog!

 

Throughout the Challenge, you will be asked to blog about your experience. Tell us about what it's like to weigh your garbage and recycling every week. Ask questions of others about how they are reducing their trash. Offer advice of things you are doing or things that didn't work for your family. We want to hear from everyone!
