Reflection, encouragement, and relationship building are all important aspects of getting a new habit to stick.
Share thoughts, encourage others, and reinforce positive new habits on the Feed.

To get started, share “your why.” Why did you join the challenge and choose the actions you did?

    Switched from plastic ziploc bags for school lunches to paper sandwich bags.

    My daughter and I collected over 500 cans and glass bottles to recycle for a fundraiser for her Theatre Arts class trip next Spring!

    I went to a Zero Waste workshop to learn how to make my own home products...moisturizer, body scrub, toothpaste, makeup and more! check out if you want to learn...
    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?

    If I have to use a disposable bag, I will reuse it around my house. That may be a as a trash bag or to pack food in so it doesn't make any messes in my fridge.

    Recycled a water bottle at Dallas Love Field and filled my bottle with water rather than buying another.  That's not as easy to do in the Dallas airports as it is at PDX!
