    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    It is difficult to make the transition to a reusable coffre cup at first cause you have to make sure you have it every morning but use it a couple of times it’s done, I have successfully transitioned to a reusable coffee cup.
