    I need to reduce the amount of water I use via the sink. Right now I am using the most water in this area. I currently only shower when I need to and try my best to always keep the showers short and to the point.

    A big way that I could reduce is by having a more sustainable car. I have to drive for work and the city I live in does not have consistent transportation, which makes it tricky. I would love to be able to bike but several of my friends have been hit by cars over the years in this city due to little to no bike lanes. It's rather tricky. 
  • Reflection Question
    Economy & Communities Learn About & Practice Sustainable Fashion
    How can you express your personality, creativity, and values in ways that don't require fast fashion or buying more clothes and accessories?

    How I present myself is my number one way of expressing myself. I don't feel like clothes can show what my personality can show if I just let it out via facial features, how I engage with others, how I carry myself, how I laugh. 
  • Reflection Question
