    I've started composting in my apartment since my building accepts it, and I've noticed a huge difference in trash reduction! I try to have minimal food waste in general, but knowing I'm contributing to this effort and encouraging my friends to do the same has had a powerful impact on me.
    Food Try a New Way to Prep
    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    This has been a great reminder that there's always more we can be doing! Love logging my actions each day and taking a minute to reflect.

    Staying active keeps me feeling young and energized. I feel energized today!
    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    I use reusable any chance I can get. I am haunted by all the disposable plastics I have used in my life. Just because they are out of sight, they are not out of mind. I hate to think about a cup that I used for 5 minutes that will outlast me on this planet. #SAD
    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?
