    Water Brush My Teeth Without Running Water
    What is the main water source in your region? If you don't know, how could you find out?

  • 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 reusable one, but it's just hard to make the switch. 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?

    It's hard for me to make the switch because the cafeteria doesn't have reusable coffee cups.
  • 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 reusable one with you or aren't allowed to use the one you brought? 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 create a successful habit of not using plastic bags?

    I usually use my pockets orĀ  a cart if I drove. I could leave a reusable bag in my vehicle or just plan ahead if I walk.

    Fresh air and movement are good for our entire being and can help us think more clearly and creatively. How does taking a walk each day affect yourself and/or your work?

    Taking a walk everyday allows our body to take in fresh air, absorb vitamin k, and expose ourselves to natural sunlight.
