    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?

    It makes me feel good that I am able to use my cup everywhere I go!

    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles serve an important role in places for health and safety, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. Can you identify the barriers in making this a new habit? How can you set yourself up for success in making this a permanent change?

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

    I would buy used, furniture, reuse containers from stores, repair own clothing and electronics, shut off electronics when not being used, shut off water when brushing my teeth and limiting shower time, I refuse to use plastic straws and recyclable containers, I do bottle returns.

    Many states and countries have advisories on eating fish. Find out what is advised for your region. Do you think your diet choices fall within these guidelines? What steps do you need to take to make sure that they do?

    When I can afford it, fresh out of the river and buy from the Natives. I also love to go crabbing and clamming by myself. It's the best thing ever!
