    I have now been conserving water and having family members take shorter showers, turning off the water while brushing their teeth and turning off the water while soaping and rubbing their hands during hand washing.

    With COVID, I am working from home. I have found I work more and take less breaks or time for myself and family. I will now make a point to break for lunch making sure to connect with my husband or check on a family member by phone during this time.

    Anything I can do to help future generations, I am all in. My goal is to cut back or do away with my families use of plastic.
