  • Reflection Question
    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?

    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? 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?

    Layla Foz 11/23/2018 12:33 AM
    I carry the items on my hand and when i can't i ask for paper boxes. if there is none ill accept the disposable bag and use it for my bathroom  trash later. to make it less often i leave reusable bags in my car.

    Food Whole Foods Diet
    Michael Pollan states that “it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor.” What are your thoughts on this idea?

    Layla Foz 11/23/2018 12:31 AM
    I feel like eating organic food is cheaper when you measure how many problems with your health you're avoiding by consuming them, and then you'll spend a lot more money on doctors and features to get your body working well again, when you save money and time if eating healthier in the first place

    Water Brush My Teeth Without Running Water
    What is the main water source in your region? If you don't know, how could you find out?

    Google. I live in Oahu, Hawaii so my water comes from aquifers.

    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?

    Layla Foz 11/22/2018 6:39 AM
    I use straws and simply stopped using them. For coffee cups I bring my own mud when I get coffee, I try to pick the vegetables with no bags but when I need to buy like almonds I bring socks to the super market. I'm still working on the no plastic water bottle/cup but I try to remind myself to bring a reusable bottle. I bring my chopsticks instead of using plastic forks as well.

    Water Use Reusable Bottles
    What are some of the needs that water meets or benefits that water provides for you?

    Water keeps me alive, keeps my body healthy and hydrated, keeps my skin good, keeps my house/my clothing clean, makes all my goods, is the source of my food, and provides me my fun times.

    Simplicity Go for a Daily Walk
    Fresh air and movement are good for our entire being and can help us think more clearly and creatively. How does taking a walk each day affect yourself and/or your work?

    Layla Foz 11/22/2018 6:33 AM
    It made me have a clearer look into my relationships and what I needed to change in me because a lot of days I choose to go out on a walk in my moment of anger, and instead of reacting agressivelly I take my time to think it through during my walk. Also, I had make ideas during walks.
