    Today I bought some items from the farmer's market, and the stand gave me a free reusable bag! (Go Supaluck's Kitchen!) The Thia tea I bought also came in a neat little glass jar instead of a plastic one, so that's another great way that they showed they are environmentally conscious. It's businesses like that, making what changes they can, that we should support with our dollars.

    It's so upsetting when I'm walking the docs and see random trash just floating in the harbor, but it's even more frustrating to see all the plastic cups, straws, and bottles left all over the docks. Especially since there are trash cans all over the docks that people could use, and decide not to. But hey, it gives me a chance to pick up random trash and throw it away!

    It's always great to go through and read responses to the reflection questions. I really should look into doing some of them myself...

    An easy way to help make an impact is to pick a couple pieces of trash on your walk to work. Especially with so many people about during the summer.
