  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    Knowing that switching from a single use cup to a reusable one is a challenge makes me feel proud of myself that I already do it. I think it's fun to collect different mugs and water bottles with unique designs, so it's good to know that my habit of buying lots of water bottles is good for something and not just a waste of my money :)
