    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Exercising outside (running, walking) is a good way to connect with nature. To incorporate time with friends or family, you can always plan a workout together, which would also be good for keeping each other accountable.

    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?

    Unfortunately, that doesn’t surprise me. A lot of families buy more food than they need and end up throwing it out when it goes bad. That $1500 could easily be spent on buying everything needed to plant a garden and grow your own food, which would be more cost effective and better for the environment.

    How can you express your personality, creativity, and values in ways that don't require fast fashion or buying more clothes and accessories?

    A great way to express yourself through fashion that doesn’t require buying more clothing is to give clothes you already have a makeover- DIY old clothing into something new and keep textile waste out of landfills.

      So true!!!  Buying thrift and making them your own is an awesome way to be sustainable and cost efficient!!
