  • Reflection Question
    Industry Recycle Everything I Can
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    Repair is something I'm trying to do anyway, but repurpose is an interesting thing. Upcycling, alternative uses for "trash" is something I'll keep looking into. Considering things of this kind makes me feel... hmm.. purposeful? Conscious of choices I'm making, and yeah, there's a little bit of the warm inside feeling that fewer things from my household end up in landfill (or recyclables processing plant).

    Refuse is the next step for me I think. One that I did start practicing during the challenge and am eager to do more! Explore options for homemade soap, refills, etc. The journey goes on!
