    Do you have any tips for others on finding locations that accept products for safe disposal?

    I'd honestly never heard of sites where you could take you expired medicine, so I'd just suggest they do a google search for finding additional locations.

    Where does the energy in your region come from? Which energy is a renewable source?

    I looked up my region using the Power Profiler and found that gas accounts for 69.1% of the fuel mix for my area and nuclear accounts for 9.9%.

    What was it like to mend your clothing? If you are skilled at mending, what tips do you have for others?

    Since I'm an avid thrifter, mending clothing is usual for me. I'm not the best at sewing, but I'd advise that fixing ripped seams is the easiest thing to mend (for me, at least).

    You miss out on the soothing quality of nature, how fresh air can improve your mood and clear your mind, how the sound of water and/or the birds chirping can be a natural form of therapy.
