  • Reflection Question
    At Home Avoid Harmful Plastics
    Do some research on polystyrene and polyvinyl. How many items in your house already contain these toxins?

    Oh so many, was really surprised 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Shop the Bulk Bins
    How has buying bulk impacted the quality of the food you receive? Why do you think our society relies more on prepackaged foods rather than buying in bulk?

    Doesn't effect quality, just convenient
  • Reflection Question
    On-the-go Use Reusable Utensils
    How can you be an advocate for using resusables instead of disposables for the rest of your community? Where are they currently dependent on disposable cutlery, and how can you convince them of the need for change?

  • Reflection Question
    Food Make Your Own
    How do you feel about being more involved in the food preparation process? Joyful, overwhelmed, engaged, empowered? What are the benefits of choosing to process or produce your own food instead of buying it pre-processed?
