  • Reflection Question
    Materials Recycle Everything I Can
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    I have focused on bringing a reusable water bottle to school! My Nalgene has become my go to for all my water needs. If I were to use single use water bottles that would be 3 a day, so I am glad I switched! I also enjoy repurposing clothes, specifically my brother's. I have stopped using fast fashion brands which creates many problems for the environment. I use reusable bags when shopping for grocery's and I love shopping at my local farmers market and grocery store! Incorporating these R's in my life has become routine and I love working to create a greener community.
