Green is Universal Eco Eats Challenge!

 Green is Universal Eco Eats Challenge!
I am participating in a fun fall challenge, Eco Eats, that runs from September 29 until October 17.  NBCU’s Green is Universal is the one who put this challenge together and they have a free tool called “One Small Act” with tons of ideas for living a little greener every day. 
I started living a more green lifestyle about 6 years ago and I know first hand it can feel overwhelming.  There are so many areas in you life that can be more eco-friendly; food, personal care, cleaners, health care, clothing and so on.  I strongly encourage others starting to live a littler greener by tackling one area at a time.  The first area in my life I “greened” was my food and food is what I suggest to people wanting to live greener to tackle first too.  This Eco Eats challenge is perfect to help you start out or continue in your journey to living a more eco-friendly life-style.
