  • Reflection Question
    Water Use Reusable Bottles
    What are some of the needs that water meets or benefits that water provides for you?

    Hydration, healthy internal balance, calorie-free drink!
  • 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?

    Kailey Corder 4/21/2020 2:53 PM
    Balance. There's plenty of times I don't have a bag and I accept a disposable bag cause of methods just wouldn't work. The key is to make sure it's packed next time.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Go Paperless
    Reducing your paper mail can reduce mental clutter as well as physical waste -- by reducing what is coming in, you can reduce what is going into the recycling bin too. How does it make you feel? What is the next step you will take to reduce your waste?

    I try to avoid signing up for mail I don't need since I'm tethered to my computer most often!
  • Reflection Question
    Water Say No to Plastic Straws
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    Kailey Corder's avatar
    Kailey Corder 4/21/2020 2:51 PM
    I'm really bad with take-out boxes and stuff like that. I don't know how to navigate eating out or ordering take out or even doing curbside pickup without avoiding these single use items.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Learn About & Practice Sustainable Fashion
    How can you express your personality, creativity, and values in ways that don't require fast fashion or buying more clothes and accessories?

    Kailey Corder 4/21/2020 2:50 PM
    This is a hard one for me. I think my journey for this topic is just starting as well but I've found it's fun to find ways to use pieces in more than one way like wearing a dress with a jean jacket but also under a sweater. little things like that!
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    Kailey Corder's avatar
    Kailey Corder 4/21/2020 2:49 PM
    an "R" guided lifestyle is something I'm just beginning so I'm excited to learn about the ways I can incorporate these principles into how I live!
  • 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?

    Kailey Corder 4/21/2020 2:48 PM
    accessibility to fresh water. I realized how privileged we are in the US when I traveled to India and we had to rely on bottled water. it opened my eyes to the resources we have that we take for granted
  • 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?

    i use a mug! it's my favorite and I've found it's helpful when the dish holds more meaning than being just a dish. my friends and I all have the same one so it connects us and we laugh and send pictures when we use it.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Work from Home
    It takes the average worker in the United States 26 minutes to travel to work. One way to fix long commutes would be to make cities more affordable. An even simpler option: promote the use of telework. How have you used technology to replace in-person meetings or work this year?

    Kailey Corder 4/21/2020 2:46 PM
    as a student studying from home, I'm finding it's not the same. we need human interaction! so this act for environmental justice would probably be something I wouldn't opt to do and would choose other positive things instead.
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Go For A Daily Walk Outside
    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?

    ahhhh it's like a mind reset. not being able to go outside and being cooped up all day on a computer has really shown how essential interact with nature is so human's happiness.
