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

    I reduce by using a re-fillable water bottle, I reuse plastic lunchmeat containers for leftovers, I refuse straws when I eat out, I repurpose the pots my flowers come in as gifts for others.

    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?

    When I go into the city, I use a backpack in case I buy something, I keep a re-usable bag in my car for shopping, and I often will just carry items rather than taking a bag.  If I do take a paper back, I use it to place my recyclable items in and place the paper bag in the recyclable bin.

    Health More Fruits and Veggies
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How can we start shifting from a meat-focused food culture to a more plant-based one?

    I believe people consume more meat through fast-food establishments.  In North America, people are in a hurry, do not take time to prepare healthy options for themselves or their family, and consumers are led to believe healthy choices cost more.
