I was talking with classmates today about how insightful it was, and how I want to advertise it to others.

Perhaps one of...

    This week, for my eco-challenge, I focused on the amount of trash I produce in any given school week. In order to be mindful and continue to reduce my consumption, I cut out single-use plastic for the week - including ziploc bags and waterbottles. I used my metal waterbottle and tupperware to avoid these. On top of this, I made the switch from...
