      Hi Jirenia,

      I always recommend the documentary 'Divide in Concord' as it is so inspirational about how 1 person can make such an impact.  See link below.

      But, this week I am going to pick a documentary from the list below.

      Let me know what you think :)

    Went to the grocery store and did my best to not buy anything with plastic! I feel accomplish when I buy stuff without any.

    I went to get some new clothes and everytime they wanted to put my clothes in a plastic bag I said "no bag please save some sea turtles" and they always said "good choice"

    I bring my stainless steel water containers everyday to work so I don't use a water bottle. It makes me feel so much better knowing I'm not using any plastic bottles and I try to inform my Coworkers the benefits of bring your own container.

      Yay! Great job! I am trying to be super diligent about bringing our reusable bottles everywhere we go (especially since it’s so hot in Florida right now).
