    Starting to take photos of things used at work that normally get thrown  away that can be recycled  to improve are recycling at work. As part of  my challange I will have photos of all items that can be recycled at work. Hopefully the information will empower people to recycle more at work.

    I am understanding that awareness is key. Encouraging others to go plastic free for even a week is eye opening experience. The amount of trash we consume in single use plastics is amazing. I am excited about the social  change we can make by being aware . No more sleepwalking through waste

      I love this! I’ve gotten a lot of my team to start using for here ware while eating/drinking at work, but it’s still an uphill battle to make get them to use reusable cups for drinks they take to go—mainly I think it’s something that you need to force yourself to get in the habit of doing. I always have a reusable water bottle with me, and I have for years, but it’s hard to get others to latch on to those behaviors.

    Feeling really energized about keeping these good habits and how each little thing I improve on will make such a huge difference.

    Today I opened a straw at a  restaurant out of habit, before my partner asked me what I was doing. Its nice to have someone keeping you  in check. Also a great reminder on how we waste on autopilot. Always be prepared and aware of what's in front of you.

    Today my challange was put to the test going out down town today with family. I remembered all of my own reusable container for water, coffee, utensils. I road the train into down town . I did create some plastic waste  with 2  granola bars I packed with me. Over all though I feel today was a success. I will work on making my own granola bars to reduce the plastic waste from packaging.

    Most challanges so far are going good. Getting my composting going. Keeping my reusable items bag with me  (actually remembering it). Just  being very aware of plastic I may encounter. Food packaging is everywhere in plastic. Super excited to keep learning new ways to reduce my impact !!
