    You can express yourself through your hair! You can also style the clothes you already have in a different way then they might be intended for!

    Some people are unable to afford brand new items, especially tech items. Recycling items helps those lower income families be able to afford these items.

    I had no idea so many of my clothing items could be recycled! I have never been super crafty with textiles so my knowledge of them was super low. After researching the textile recycling process, I have learned how to upcycle (mostly socks as my husband goes through them like crazy) and where I can take my clothes to be repurposed in other ways!...

    I have now gotten into the habit of looking at local events going on around me when I get on my social media and sharing them with my friends and family. I just always have to make sure that the events are real and not a scam!

    It made me feel better knowing that my items were going to people who would actually use them properly. You never know where your items go even when you donate them. This way, I ensured that they were going to homes that actually needed them.

    I was surprised by the affect that plastics, fossil fuels, and oil subsidies have on the environment. I had never done much research about it before.

    I have reused paper bags as bookmarks, plastic bags for travel storage (for wet items and shoes) and for litter disposal, and refilled single-use items when possible!

    Yes, I see so many plastic bottles being thrown in the trash, and a lot of them still have liquid inside them. I use water bottles that I refill so that I am not adding to the landfills.

    When I am working in the office, I bring my own lunch and utensils so that I do not need to go out and buy anything. This helps to keep the trash down.

    We begin to see "things" as something precious and valuable, not something to be tossed away when it has served it designated purpose.
