    I am completing work training from home and not going out this week.  So my footprint will be small this week. 
  • Reflection Question
    Pets All Natural Pet Toys
    In what ways is supplying your pet with all natural pet toys better for your pet, better for you, and better for the environment?

    I buy natural bones for my cocker spaniel, not only for the environment but for her health. She loves the bones! 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Use Reusable Water Bottles
    Using the links provided, investigate the bottling practices of water corporations. There have been many cases where the water rights of the local people have been violated or even completely disregarded when a corporation decides to bottle water from a particular water source. How can you advocate for those who have been harmed by this bottling process?

    I have been using water bottles or a tervis cup for years.  If I do purchase a bottle I reuse it and recycle when finished.
