Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

akgbio pantyliners!

I saw these in a different supermarket to where I usually shop and thought I had to give them a go. They are made from tree pulp and maize so can probably even go on a compost heap! 8 years ago

akgCar shared this morning

My husband dropped at work this morning, unfortunately this means I get to work earlier and will leave later so I am trying to use the time wisely by updating my sites 9 years ago

akgJust a small step

but last night after opening a new packet of cheese instead of putting it in a plastic bag or wrapping it in a cling film I placed it in a small tupperware box. I know its not saving much, but every drop helps especially when it comes to oil. 9 years ago

akgWent to the farmers market today

and bought locally reared meat and eggs. Also went to the lumber merchants, supermarket and pet shop in the same trip to reduce on fuel use. 9 years ago

akgI've got a measure to see my progress

My current footprint is 4.9 global hectares (compared to 5.3 average in the UK). If everyone lived liked me we would need 2.7 planets!

notes to ensure I’m consistent in future:
house – 40m2
car – 5l 9 years ago

akgI should try harder

I’m environmental consulstant and although I’ve taken some action, I suspect I can do more. I’ve added this as a goal to remind me to read some of the books I’ve got and hopefully find some actions 9 years ago
