  • Reflection Question
    Waste Personal Waste Audit
    Why is it so difficult to understand the impacts our purchases and waste have on other people, animals, and places? How might your experience with this challenge impact your future consumption and choices?

    Ryan Bohan 9/22/2019 10:13 PM
    I thinks it's difficult to understand the impacts our purchases and waste may have on other people because many people tend not to look at the larger picture and plus people typically tend to be more selfish.
