Positive Change Challenge for February 2010

Is everyone remembering to bring recyclable bags into the grocery store?  If so, great job, keep it up!

This month’s challenge is to catch yourself failing to recycle something, either because you were flirting with laziness or you were just on auto-pilot and forgot.  Do the right thing and dispose of it properly.

SHARE YOUR RESULTS!

Do you have a good idea for a challenge?
