  • Reflection Question
    Personal Care Just Say No
    Do some research on polystyrene and polyvinyl. How many items in your house already contain these toxins?

    Chrise Dagoglou 7/08/2020 6:12 PM
    A lot of the cleaning items and the packages they come in that I have in my house, seem to be the main culprits of using these toxic plastics. It can be pretty difficult to avoid these plastics because the many products don't show the materials that their packages come in. Because the compounds aren't clearly labeled on the packages (when it comes to bottles, grocery bags, and other things) it can be very difficult for me and other people to avoid these toxins

    I helped my mom re-purpose some shirts today instead of buying new clothes

    I created a custom challenge called "Eco Artist!" where you have to create a piece of art made out of materials that you have at your house or things that you can pick up from your community or something that depicts human impact on the environment or what a more sustainable world would look like

    How can/did you prepare to be successful in this action? Did you engage in conversation with anyone about your new habit?

    Chrise Dagoglou 7/05/2020 7:16 PM
    I already carry around stainless steel/metal water bottles with me, but I've been trying to get the rest of my family to develop this habit. Its proving successful!

    Lifestyle Support a Sharing Economy
    What are the benefits of a sharing economy? How could a sharing economy change the dynamics you have with friends, family and/or neighbors?

    Chrise Dagoglou 7/05/2020 7:13 PM
    I borrowed a shirt for a project that I was working on instead of going out and buying the same shirt. I much rather borrow and share things, like clothes, because it saves money. Plus, you can always wash the clothes before you return them

    Family Swap the Snacks
    How does swapping out prepackaged snacks for fresh fruit or veggies benefit your family?

    Chrise Dagoglou 7/02/2020 11:28 AM
    I had a really good peach today. It was super sweet and juicy and I'm happy I passed on the prepackaged snack
  • Reflection Question
    Food Skip the Straw
    Have you noticed a shift in your community as more messaging about reusable straws becomes mainstream? Cite some examples.

    Chrise Dagoglou 7/02/2020 11:26 AM
    Skipping the straw is actually pretty easy when you're staying at home. I use metal straws and reuse plastic straws that I already have.
