    As a person who has been sarcastically called Zero Impact Man in the past, I have been involved in plastic reduction and reuse and recycling for decades now. Still, I was surprised how much I learned during this experience and how profound was the impact of the month. Thanks for making this happen. Next year, I'd love us to be able to open it...

    Boy, I'm thankful for this challenge. I've learned a lot and hope you all have too. Even more importantly, I hope that it has led to changes in your behavior to try to reduce your plastic consumption, as it has for me! Go Team TLD!

We need to do 700 more than the folks above us to get into 27th! let's try to do our actions, check in, make our pledges, and get into the top 25 before the end of the month - in a few days! Go Team TLD!
