    I was not aware that we had to have photo evidence but I am not able to provide a photo because the leaky faucet I fixed is at my apartment back in Knoxville but I can assure you that it was leaking for the entire first semester and then when I saw this challenge as one of the options the first thing I did was call up our apartment complex's handyman named Donny, to come and take a look and he was able to fix it immediately which is a simple fix that i'm sure saved a lot of wasted water

    Today I drank two glasses of water rather than two bottles of water.

    Now that the world is in pandemic mode I am home doing online classes and my mom always has bought these huge packs of water bottles but after a debate I had with her I have convinced her to stop buying these huge cases of plastic water bottles and instead just keep a Brita filter in the fridge. 
  • Reflection Question
    Materials Reduce Single-Use Disposables
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    I usually would bring a new water bottle everyday with me to class but instead I have started to refill a refillable water bottle and bring it to class.
