    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    I can help my community become more sustainable by volunteering to plant more trees in the local parks.

    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    After watching the documentary Plastic Ocean I have been very conscious about recycling plastic and trying to consume less plastic.

    So far, my challenge has been focused on consuming less. Today I brought my ceramic mug to work for coffee. Envision a world with no plastic cups!
