    We just put in two rain barrels in my family's backyard! They are connected to the gutters of our house and garage, so whenever it rains, the water will drain into the rain barrels! If the rain barrels get completely full, the pump will shut off that pipe and the water will continue to drain out of the usual gutter. Also, this rain water will be used to water all the new flowers we are going to plant soon!

    I found a great website to buy second hand clothing! It's called goodfair and they sell "surprise" packages, so you don't necessarily know the exact design you get, but you get a theme! It's super awesome, and wonderful for our earth!!

  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    It is so easy to apply to your life. It saves binder space if you're printing school worksheets or notes! It's a simple button you click on your printer settings. It is an easy, earth friendly switch to make.

  • 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?

    Especially during COVID-19, going out to get necessary items from stores makes it easier and more convenient to accept a disposable bag. Just today, I was at the store with my mother to help get necessary medicine for my little sister. When we were checking out, my mom wanted to use a disposable bag. The solution to just carry it out by hand was a simple solution, but sometimes it is not the best solution during this time.

      I agree, sometimes it can be hard to not use disposable bags in certain situations especially during COVID-19!  Reflections like these are an awesome way to stop and look at our actions, keep up the awesome work and let me know if you have questions!!
