    Food Plant an Herb Garden
    Consider the ways you can garden: a plot of land? a patio container? hanging basket? windowsill gardens? What would work best for your living situation and lifestyle?

    I bought wood and decided to make a small Garden box. My dad helped me make it and my mom helped planting seeds. Now I can see small sprouts growing. I’m excited to see the prosees.

    I saw myself purchasing alot  of plastic water bottles, and noticed how much more efficient and healthy is to carry a water bottle with you. I think it’s important to limit the purchase of harmful products and it’s also cheaper to have reusable things on hand.

    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

  • 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?

    if i dont have to many things i will carry out the items in arms or cart, but sometimes i purchase a reusable bag on the spot or if they dont have any i will just get plastic if its needed.
