  • Reflection Question
    Food Use a Reusable Mug / Collapsible Cup
    Since the restrictions that COVID-19 has required of our society, trying to use your own cup might present new barriers, as well as new opportunities for creative problem solving. How were you able to achieve success on this action? How can you make it a long-term habit?

    I have started to bring my own mug to work everyday, as to cut down on the use of styrofoam cups! I have staged a coffee cup in my most common workplace in Hope's to keep this a long term habit.
