    I got a cool reusable straw from an exhibit at the Jordan Schnitzer art museum going on about plastics - I definitely recommend this as a beautiful, educational display. (You could choose from a straw or reusable take-out utensils if you fill out their survey.)
  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    I play a song (or sometimes sing!) while I'm in the shower and try to race the song to finish my shower before it ends. This has made this challenge really fun! My next step to water conservation will be looking at how I use water in the kitchen for dishes and cooking and seeing if there are ways to be more efficient.
