    I learned from this challenge that when we all try, we can reduce plastic waste and it proves that we can live without it and clean our planet a little at a time. A little goes a long way, especially if a bunch of people pitch in.

  • Reflection Question
    Food Start Composting
    Do an inventory of how much food waste you would save from going to the landfill if you start composting all of the time. What are the added benefits of having compost that is readily accessible?

    Benefits of having a compost bin are throwing less trash away and it going into the landfill. Compost bins are also good because you can put things like banana peels in them and they become soil.
