  • Reflection Question
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    Hellen Ragira 4/24/2019 4:28 PM
    I will reuse any reusables in the house,
    repair and not buy new stuff that I already have that need repair and repurpose stuff like cans for a different purpose instead of trashing it.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?
