I will walk 1 mile(s) each day instead of driving and avoid sending up to 0.0 lbs of CO2 into Earth's atmosphere.

Water

Say No to Plastic Straws

An estimated 71% of seabirds and 30% of turtles have been found with plastics in their stomachs. When they ingest plastic, marine life has a 50% mortality rate. By asking for no straw when placing a drink order, I will keep 1 plastic straw(s) of out of the ocean each day.

Waste

Reduce Single-Use Disposables

Cheap, single-use items and disposable packaging end up blowing around as litter more often in poor and POC-majority neighborhoods. I will find out how I can limit single-use items and do my best to limit the waste I generate.

Use a Reusable Water Bottle

I will keep disposable plastic bottle(s) from entering the waste stream by using a reusable water bottle.

If at all possible, I will not accept any disposable bags when making purchases.

Waste

Skip the Straw

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our waterways. I will keep plastic straw(s) out of the landfill and ocean each day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.

Exercise Daily

Exercise is a great stress blaster! I will exercise for 30 minute(s) each day.
