    After class, me and my friends walk to my dorm in Prom to hang out or cook little meals. I honestly started walking more instead of taking to bus to main campus because of my apple watch. It keeps me on track to meet my daily goals

    Every weekend, I like to take a look at my room and clean up what I can and stay organized. The best way for me to prevent accumulating unnecessary things is to build a routine. The little things like making my bed every morning, or organizing my desk space
    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?

    Depending on the amount of items I bought, I would just hold it in my hands or use the cart if it's too heavy to carry.

    The best way to get rid on the habit of using plastic bags in a daily setting would be using a cart.

    Better now that I figured out what I have been doing wrong this whole time.

    I use power pretty sparingly. I only turn on the lights when nessisary. I keep my house like a cave I must have been a cave dweller in another life. I really only use the TV for extended periods of time and it's a very energy efficient model. I don't open the refrigerator much and I keep it organized so I know exactly what I am looking for.
    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 don't do straws especially the paper ones. The only think those are possibly good for is snorting coke.
    Water Conserve Toilet Water
    What would a sustainable water future in your region look like? What needs to change?

    You know what they say if it's yellow let it mellow. The only time this is a problem is if there are women in the household some of them use a ton of toilet paper. Then you must flush unless you like plunging toilets.
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    Some people shower everyday. I personally don't unless I have been sweating a whole bunch or have done something that you really get dirty. I shower typically every other day. I only spend 5 minutes of less running the water, sort of like some public showers you have to push a button and it only stays on for so long.
    Waste Prevent Recycling Contamination
    What have you learned about what is accepted by local haulers for recycling, what you can drop off or ship to certain places, and what is not recyclable in your area? What is the most difficult part of recycling for you?

    Moshe Abramovitz 's avatar
    Moshe Abramovitz 4/30/2024 9:01 AM
    Unfortunately the majority of items that are recyclable in our area are not. I don't have to think much about recycling cause we have our on-site manager sort the items we put into recycling bins.
    Waste Compost Food Waste
    New to composting? Be sure to check out the action resource links to learn tips and more about it. As you transition from throwing food away to composting, what do you notice about how much you are tossing? How will you use your compost once it is ready?

    Fortunately I live in a complex that has an exterior bin for compostable materials so I don't need to stink up my house. Makes it easy and makes it clean.
