  • Health
    Xenia Minnaert's avatar
    I will avoid buying toxic plastics - including polycarbonate, polystyrene and polyvinyl - and instead replace them with bioplastic or durable options.
  • Waste
    Hope Gribble's avatar
    Plastic bags and small plastic pieces like straws are most likely to get swept into our waterways. I will keep 1 plastic straw(s) out of the landfill and ocean each day by refusing straws or using my own glass/metal straw.
  • Nature
    Farzaneh Parsinezhad's avatar
    I will explore at least one new hiking trail or nature walk in my area.

    I felt a bit bored and isolated at times.  At other times, it was good to get out.
