    today was a little more challenging and the weird looks I get when carrying stuff that other folks would consider garbage around until I get to somewhere I can recycle it is getting hilarious

    Today I had a ton of stuff to go through and decide if it was recyclable or I had to trash it...To my surprise most of it was garbage. I spent a good amount of time trying to figure out how to reuse a lot of these items and unfortunately came up with nothing and am kind of in a funk about it.

    Grabbed lunch to go today; a lot of wasted materials but all recyclable. NEED to talk to the office about a recycling program.

    This is actually pretty fun. Makes you constantly think about how an action may impede your goals. I have found that the more it makes you think, the better decisions are made.

    I decided I wanted to stop at Starbucks on my way to class and realized I did not have a reusable cup in my car. After paying $29.40 for a mug and coffee I think I need  be better prepared for future instances.

      I sympathize, having forgotten my reusable Starbuck's cup twice, now!  But why stop there?  Create a complete Restaurant Survival Kit and carry it with you!  Not only does our team captain do this already, but Brevard Zoo's Women of the Wild program is about to roll out its version - in time for the holidays!
