    It is a little bit hard for me to shower in 5 minutes!

    Mariam S.m. 4/08/2021 5:05 PM
    I don’t know how to find it out. I don’t know why I don’t care.

    All that need to change is why people flush for no reasons.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reusable one with you or aren't allowed to use the one you brought? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to create a successful habit of not using plastic bags?

    Try to use reusable bags.

    Turn it off, you’ll save more than energy. Money, reduce carbon footprint, save the earth.

    Even with a cold water you will clean clothes, I don’t think there is a big deference of using cold water!

  • 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?

    It is not hard for me to use tap water!
