    Straws are one of my go-to utensils when it comes to my everyday life. Straws just make drinking a lot easier and faster for me. Something I have done to eliminate plastic straws from my life is to use metal straws.

    I do a lot of things that make me feel good in times where self care is needed. I draw, listen to music, take a nice shower, eat good food. Self care practices are endless.

    My campus eco-challenge has been going great. It has been motivating me to be more conscious of my actions in my everyday life. I am slowly seeing certain challenges becoming my go-to reaction in my everyday life. These measures have created a whole new lifestyle for me.

    It allows you to use items in different ways, for example 1 piece of clothing can potentially be worn  3+ different ways

    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!

    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!

    Turn of light switches when they do not need to be in use! I always remember to check the lights before i leave my house!
