    It's incredible to see the amount of water that I use on a daily basis and things that I didn't even think to factor into my water consumption such as the amount of pet food that I buy and my online shopping habits. It really shows the many different ways that one can work to help decrease their use of water and work to live a slightly more sustainable lifestlye.

    Considering my use of single-use plastics often comes down to time and convenience: is it easier for me to just fill a water bottle, or grab a plastic one? Oftentimes, I have found that the more sustainable options aren't even that time-consuming or inconvenient. It takes the dedication to waste one extra minute to help reduce my impact on the earth and create less waste.

    Spending time outside improves my mood so much and helps to lift up my day every time I get to sit outside. It’s so easy especially when the weather is this nice.

    I feel it's important to do research on the companies that we purchase from frequently and see the impacts that they are having on the earth. In this day and age, it is very possible for all companies to have a greener impact, and we can no longer claim ignorance that "I didn't know that they polluted this much, etc." We have a consumer responsibility to uphold and try to make better choices.
