    Hey Team! 
    My name is Dominique and I'm a 1st year business management student. I'm 25 and have 1 prior degree and I own two small businesses. The reason I started this challenge is because Travis sat down in a booth with my sisters and I and he asked us if we wanted to give it a shot and we all said sure! 
    I'm a mom to an awesome 6 year old and I would love to be able to use this challenge to teach him to be more mindful of how our actions can either help or harm the environment we live in and learn a little bit about habits I could change in the process!

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

    I could do this by being more mindfully aware of the actions I take daily and how they can affect our environment

      I have to admit, giving up plastic straws is going to be a toughie for me, but I'm always down for another excuse to buy a new tumbler :)
