    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?

    I try to keep three reusable bags in my trunk and three more on a hook by my door  in my apartment. When I bring up groceries, I hang the empty bags on the hook  -  so if there are more than than three in either location - I bring back the difference  on my next trip.   If I  ever do need to take a disposable bag, I try to reuse it as much as possible.    And limiting it to three bags helps me be more mindful of my purchases or what I am bringing to an event.

    Every Sunday and Wednesday I visit the Texas Farmers' Market to check out local farmers and to source my food locally!

    Every Sunday, I meal prep my breakfast and lunches for the week using only organic meat/eggs/veggies!

    On August 21 and 23, I led the Austin Community College Sustainability Team at two campus events.  We monitored waste stations to help make both events with 100+ attendee turnouts Zero Waste!

    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    It is often said that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” What is your response to that statement?

    Yes it can and ultimately will  - It will require market driven buy-in and clean energy solutions to shift away from monoculture and centralized farming.
