    Joining this challenge has me pretty pleased with how many actions I’ve already taken, and has also given me some ideas for new behavior changes that will have an impact. I’ve been working on swapping household cleaning products for more sustainable varieties. Some actions are easier these days since we’re snacking at home. These will be good habits to carry forward when we’re consuming food away from home more.
