I hope this month has been a positive experience for anyone participating in Plastic-Free July. That’s the whole point of ZooFit and the Eco-Challenge. Have fun and make conservation fitness positive for you and the world.
When we start changing our own behavior for the better, it sometimes has a weird effect on our mentality. You want to shout from the mountain tops how eliminating plastic from our life has made it better. And you notice the actions of others NOT eliminating plastic much more prominently.

Whidbey Island is a fantastic and beautiful place to live. But one thing I wish I could change is the recycling accessibility. We don’t recycle near the amount of items that Seattle or other cities do. It’s the downside to small community living.
I don’t have a dog. Sometimes I imagine training my cats to let me put a leash on them and take them around. Sullivan might like it. The Kid? No. Just no.
