    I wish I'd started this challenge earlier- its so interesting and engaging! I also wish I can do more water actions (as this class's week was water sinks) but many of the options are permanent or expensive. (ah college) 
  • 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?

    Its actually easy if at home, just use a mug. If someone goes out, use a reusable container and if its fancy it gives them a chance to flex. This implies making coffee at home instead of buying out. However if coffee is homemade, grounds can be used for compost (with acidic balanced)
