    I’ve been watching the Down to Earth series on Netflix and just finished the episode in London where they highlighted the litter along the Thames River. Interestingly, they shored up one section of the bank with old war ships (barges?) to prevent erosion, which have become nesting structures for birds.

    Easy-peasy, been doing this for many years. Only difficult part was getting into the habit of taking the bags out of the trunk when going into the store

    I tried using my reusable mug at Bruegger's yesterday and unfortunately they said they cannot accept reusables at this time. Thankfully I started making my own milk tea a while ago to save money, so I think I'll do the same with iced coffee, and start perfecting my technique!

    I’m loving this challenge! It helps me stay more aware to little things I can do to help make a big difference. I’ve also been searching for books such as The Zero Waste Lifestyle to learn more
