    This challenged has gone very well! I’d have to say the hardest part was remembering to log everything daily. Alongside this, I noticed my go to bag usage is plastic store bags. I did not have an action for this, but am not exploring ways of using reusable bags. Also, I’m getting my family to buy less plastic water bottles and use reusable as...

Implementing the Rs seems a part of...

    For me, my pets are a connection to the environment because they are animals. My compassion towards them extends to other wildlife within the environment.
