  • Reflection Question
    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?

    I will either carry it out the store w/o a bag (depending on item), in my purse, in a disposable bag or will get a plastic bag but will recycle it later.

    I have no plans to spend the money I save for making energy efficient choices, the unspent money will just accrue interest in my accounts.
