Ashley's Actions

Waste

Skip the Straw

Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our waterways. I will keep 1 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill and ocean each day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.

    I was able to go the entire challenge without using a plastic straw and plan to continue to avoid plastic straws.

    I did a good job of only using the lights when needs and keeping appliances unplugged when they aren't being used.

    It's been super sunny lately so I've been able to use natural light all day and not use the lights in my dorm.

    My reusable straw was dirty so I had hot coffee, instead of iced. This way I didn't need to waste a plastic straw.

    I used a reusable water bottle and straw all day for my water.

    I always double check that my lights are all off when I leave so that energy isn't wasted.

    I haven't used plastic straw since this challenge started because I've been remembering to use my reusable one.

    I've had my lights off all day and have been using the natural light through the window.

    I used a reusable straw for my iced coffee like usual.

    I kept the lights off almost all day and still keep my microwave unplugged when I'm not using it.
