    gardening is nicer than some farms growing their plants. Much fresher and cleaner

    There's always something/ most things that are unwanted in our houses so why continue to keep them, it's just make things at home very cluttered. Too much things in your home then it's impossible to find things you want to actually want to find.

    Just be grateful for everything that we have right now and be grateful to your parents that gave us all of these things.
  • Reflection Question
    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?

    Plastic bottles aren't really good even if we try to recycle it but using S'well or reusable bottles help a lot more than plastic bottles.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    I usually print documents out in school which they print double sided now. So no need to waste on paper.
