  • Reflection Question
    Materials 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?

    My family participates in all the "R's" currently. Our local community provides resources to dispose of weekly, making it very easy to incorporate the "R's" daily. 
    It feels good to be part of a greener lifestyle!  
  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    Fun fact: Your brain and stomach register feelings of fullness after about 20 minutes of eating. While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come out of eating smaller portions?

    Smaller portions appear as if you are eating more, this may result in weight loss!
