    You could find a way to show interest like asking what kind of dog they're walking or what book they're reading.

    Drinking lots of water helps me exercise better, have clearer skin, and digest food.
  • 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?

    A helpful system I found if I find myself needing a bag is just carrying my backpack with me everywhere wether I'm going to buy something or not. That way I always have a bag just in case I or someone with me decides to buy something.
