  • Reflection Question
    Food Skip the Straw
    Have you noticed a shift in your community as more messaging about reusable straws becomes mainstream? Cite some examples.

    Amy Fu 7/30/2020 10:24 PM
    More restaurants are supporting "No Straw Campaign" and only offer plastic straws to customers upon request.  Largest fast-food giants like McDonalds, Fairwood, Maxim, Cafe de Coral is one of many examples.

    Say no to plastic cling wrap and replace them with ethically made and biodegradable organic cotton food covers. It can keep your food super fresh. Also, it is also washable meaning that you can use it over and over.

    Bamboo cutlery is actually heat, water and stain-resistant.  You are not going to have to worry about your utensils changing shapes or turning yellow from eating curry or other food.  Wash it and dry it straight away after eating and your bamboo utensils will last much longer.

    Use Reusable Utensils all the time!

  • Amy Fu 7/30/2020 9:45 PM
    Next time when you are offered single use plastics, like cutlery and straws, don't accept it just because it's convenient at that moment. If you can't reuse it, refuse it. Do it for the environment.

    Personal Care Pretty oh so Pretty
    How can you advocate for the importance of reducing packaging to the rest of your friends, family and larger community?

    Candy Tong 7/30/2020 9:36 PM
    I will introduce products with less package to my friends, and not wrapping gifts as what we care should be the value of the product but not the one-off package of the product.

    Personal Care Lather Up
    What are the economic and personal benefits of switching to bar soap/shampoo/conditioner or refillable bottle options?

    Candy Tong 7/30/2020 9:33 PM
    Actually, it is easy to storage without the plastic container; this will help to reduce the shipment cost and carbon footprint incurred during transportation.

    Personal Care Brusha Brusha Brusha
    What are the benefits of switching to bamboo toothbrushes? How would you implore others in your community to make this switch as well?

    Candy Tong 7/30/2020 9:31 PM
    you can help to reduce the use of plastic for the production of toothbrushes! Will introduce the product to my family by sending them as a gift, trying to change their buying habit.
