  • Reflection Question
    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.

    I keep forgetting mine at home or work. I can crochet a cover for my glass jars and then have more mugs to use!
