  • Reflection Question
    Food Buy Unpackaged Produce
    Why do you think these produce products started amassing so much plastic packaging? Who is the plastic packaging really serving -- the consumer, the producer, or someone else?

    Cheaper packaging for goods aids the manufacturer

    Have you noticed a shift in your community as more messaging about reusable straws becomes mainstream? Cite some examples.

    Personal Care Lather Up
    What are the economic and personal benefits of switching to bar soap/shampoo/conditioner or refillable bottle options?

    Kathryn Jones 7/02/2019 12:46 PM
    Not only is this responsible it’s also economical.  I always do this.  Buy in bulk and save.
