Reflections

This class has challenged me to think of alternatives for creating a more environmentally conscious world. I have now started using the reusable bags at the grocery store. I must admit it has been a challenge to remember to bring the bags but as Michelle suggested, I just add a reminder on my grocery list to bring them. I have now also started recycling my newspapers, aluminum cans and plastics such as milk containers, yogurt containers, etc. It does take a little bit of an effort to rinse the containers out and choose which bin to throw them in. However, I am certain that it will pay off in the end. I may not see the results right away if ever in my lifetime. Just knowing I am being thoughtful of others future makes me humble. I feel an obligation now to be responsible for what is mine. This includes where my stuff is disposed. This class has truly opened my eyes to see on a much larger scale how my actions affect others. It certainly has been an experience I will not forget.

If every person shared your sense of personal responsibility and selfless attitude, the world would be a better place. Pass it on...

I have another suggestion too. I have trouble remembering the bags too so I leave them in my car. Then I had trouble remembering to take a bag for a small trip, like to Walgreen's, so I put one of those small reusable bags in my purse so it would be in there when I pull out my wallet.
