    Nature Go for a Daily Walk
    How do you experience your neighborhood or city differently when walking instead of driving?

    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?

      I think using towels because I can wash those, I use to use about 5 cotton rounds everyday to remove my makeup at night or to cleanse my face and have now switched to facials towels. But for food I guess I could do that to I just think it will be weird to use a towel/cloth since I am not use to that.

    What is the main water source in your region? If you don't know, how could you find out?

    I do not know where our water source comes from but I could look it up and figure out where it comes from.
