    it is going great! a great reminder is to turn off all lights and unplug all things you are not using before leaving the house, even things unused are still taking electricity by just being plugged in!
  • Reflection Question
    Water Say No to Plastic Straws
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    I try not to use any, but things I buy from the grocery are sometimes in plastic. The best way to avoid this is to shop at grocery stores that don't use that kind of packaging, or to think about what you are buying before you do so!
