    Incorporating the 5 R's into my lifestyle includes a 6th R - Remember!!!  What are your options when you make a decision to throw something out... don't forget good will, post something online as a "freebie", make your throw away someone's treasure.  It's easy to take a picture and post it.

    Nice work, everyone!  I thought I'd share a cool image I stumbled upon.  Now it's time to continue ecochallenge offline.

    I honestly have no idea. I will do some research on my area. I just moved so I am not familiar with everything yet, so I imagine I could call a state department or do a search on the internet.

    That's a really tough question and I honestly don't know the answer. I would love to get some thoughts. I will probably google an answer once I submit, but I wanted to be truthful in saying I really don't know. :/

    Work is not everything and I constantly have to remind myself I am more than just the job I do every day. I have hobbies and interests and they deserve time and attention as well so I feel fulfilled. If I don't actually do all the things that make me happy, I could become resentful and not fully present with the things I do spend my time on...

    Creating something out of nothing is an art form. The idea of doing more with less is what I think of when I hear the words simplicity. I also hear accomplishing the same goal using a different path. You have to be nimble and creative to do more with less.

    I try to take an inventory regularly of what I have so I know what I need and don't need. I think my past has a lot to do with that desire to have extra of everything, but the amount of extra for me can be unreasonable. I think being realistic about space and actual needs vs wants will make a difference.

    I haven't done a great job with this challenge, but this question makes me think about my approach. Maybe if I took a friend to the gym with me or we went for walks together at a park, I would be more inclined to get outside or generally get moving.

    That's a great question and I am a big fan of research so I would say my first step would be to look at how all parts of a vegetable can be used. Vegetable broth/stock come to mind right away, but I am sure there are a million other ways to use all of a vegetable.

    I could not agree more. Our food and the source of our food is so important to our long term health. Things can be processed to the point of no nutritional value or processed to the point of causing harm. We have to be conscious of what we are putting in our bodies to avoid becoming sick.
