St. Joe’s Ecochallenge is off to a very strong start, with one week complete and reported on. From weighing their garbage, not idling, turning down the in-floor heat and unplugging chargers that arn’t charging (that’s one family), to removing heavy, unused items from the car, eating much less meat, and really paying attention to buying less packaging (that’s another family), the students are showing real commitment and hard work. And they really are involving their families, trying to get sisters and brothers on board (doesn’t always work) as well as their parents. As one student wrote: “Sometimes I have to … follow my mom around and turn off the tap after her because she can`t seem to turn off the tap when she brushes her teeth“. Way to go, St. Joe`s!
