  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles are needed for health and safety in certain places, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. What are the barriers to you using reusable bottles and tap water instead of bottled water? How could you make this a permanent habit?

    You have to make sure that you are not using an unnessisary amount of plastic bottles. Also, you could make plastic water bottles into a plant habitat, and if you look it up, there are tons of other things you can do to keep them out of the ocean.

    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    Next, you can use shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bars, instead of wasting plastic for the containers.

    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    I could not use plastic toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, and more. You could make sure to consider upcycling before you throw things out.

      Right now with the kids out of school EVERYTHING becomes arts and crafts supplies. Many of the crafts end up in our "museum". When we need to clean out the museum we reuse some parts and recycle the rest.

      same thing with my siblings, they have TONS of boxes, scrap string, and even more that they use for crafts.

    Nature Leave No Trace
    Educator Stephanie Kaza advises her students to focus on what they care about most when addressing the enormity of ecological problems. Is there a specific area you feel particularly called to work on?

    I really like marine biology, so I would say that I esspecially focus on what I can help save in the ocean when I do these kinds of challenges. I like to do the nature and waste actions because I know that if you prevent waste in the ocean, you can help save the ocean from being a big trash bomb. :(
