    What's an eco makeover, you ask? It's a challenge to change THREE (3) everyday habits of yours that have a negative impact on the environment. Switch to greener alternatives for one week, and see how you fare!


    Jenn was joined by BuzzFeed's own Auri Jackson to kick off her makeover. To pick her three challenges for the week, she got to spin a game show wheel — Pat Sajak is shaking!!!


    After three spins, here was Jenn's challenge for the next seven days: 1) Cut out all meat from her diet. 2) Limit showers to just FIVE minutes. 3) Start a compost.


    Sounds pretty doable, right?? But for Jenn, some challenges would prove more difficult than others — like figuring out how to put together her very first compost.


    So, how did her eco makeover turn out? Did she manage to go a week without meat? Can she really survive without those long, luxurious showers? And how the hell DO you start a compost? Check out the video to find out!
