    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?

    My regular trash has only been filling up 1/3 of the way from the prior 2/3. My recycle bin is now filled up 4/3. This is due to cleaning all of my single use plastics and putting them in the recycle.

    I don't do it for the likes or high fives...I do it for the environment!

    I have now avoided sending 80 cups to the landfill by using reusable mugs! You can drink your lattes AND save the environment at the same time!

    Doing really good on this challenge. I haven't used a straw in over two months. I also make sure to put the straw back when I am given one so that don't just assume I used the straw and put it in the trash 
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    Something I can really do is talk to the businesses that I work with and try to educate them on my learning and show them the savings I have achieved with going to two sided printing. I can do this in in our general business passings

    It's been amazing to see all of the coffee shops that I visit transitioning (some already have) to straw-less iced drinks, where the lids now have a small opening rather than a place to puncture it with a straw. Slowly and gradually we are making an impact on reducing our waste!
