    the trimet has improved a lot these couple of years by posting a bus schedule now since it would be a code that you would have to look up to know when the bus is coming.
    I live by a trimet and max station in Clackamas, I would be able to pick up trash around and also trimet has a spot where theyre seating which is really nice instead of the one seat on every trimet spot. but i would keep it clean.

    Food Weekly Meal Planning
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four in the US spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Does this surprise you? Where would you rather use this money?

    living with a big family we used to buy too many groceries that we dont even use and i realized it after always cleaning up the fridge. I know that it was getting at the point that is wasting money so i helped out by getting groceries and make sure what we are gonna use. Because we had too many stuff that it was just sitting there so i would just put it in a bag and put it in my car so i can hand it out to homeless. But no more wasting food.

  • 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 have been going paperless by using my documents on my ipad now. I used to print out lab manuals and stuff for my classes but now i just download it on my ipad but either way using paper i am going to end up wasting it. I also barely get any mail. When i do its somthing important that i just keep.

    I really love going on walks with my dog and taking her to her favorite dog park but lately, i have been feeling super drained and tired. I want to start going by slowly. By walking her in the morning around the block.

      dogs are great at getting their owners outside on walks. do the walks help you feel more energized?
