    How difficult was this challenge for you? What made it easy or difficult?

    This challenge was more difficult than I expected becauseĀ if I didn't have a reusable bag with me, than I found that the only option I had was to use the bags a store provided. A good tip I have is to keep a reusable bag in your computer bag when at work.

    How are caring for your pet and caring for the environment connected for you?

    Caring for the environment means helping to maintain a healthy and clean place for our pets and all of us to grow up in.

    What is the benefit of using bar soaps or refilling your travel sized containers? Is this an action you think you will keep in your life?

    Karen Barlotta 7/21/2019 7:21 AM
    By using refillable bottles I am always sure to have my favorite product with me (versus whatever travel size products I might find) while also doing something good for the environment.
