    Usually Phil & I drive together to Hanover/Lebanon for the gym, shopping and errands. I had a meeting today so we took two cars. Trying to get as many 'carpooling' credits as possible during this challenge.
  • 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?

    I have purchased mesh bags for when I buy vegetables or bagels. They are easy to wash and reuse.
    My daughter gave me some bamboo towels which we have been using and then washing. We do not have paper towels in the house, which feels great.
