  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

    I always normally have my reusable water bottle with me so it was easy to make this change and not use plastic water bottles that aren't reusable.

    Food Plant an Herb Garden
    Consider the ways you can garden: a plot of land? a patio container? hanging basket? windowsill gardens? What would work best for your living situation and lifestyle?

    We have plants all around the house some are even growing on the walls and we have a greenhouse out back to garden. I enjoyed gardening in the backyard and am excited for the blueberries and raspberries to be ready.

    How is electricity generated where you live? How does it impact the environment, animals, and humans?

    electricity is generated from the power that goes through the town and it impacts everyone by providing us with power to do our daily activities like have electricity to power lights and do other things.
