    This week I am focusing on my local community and purchasing habits surrounding food. I don't really go out to eat much but when I do I always go to the same place called Olde Line Lanes in Lincoln City. Luckily for me, this is a restaurant that limits their waste, makes all the food in house, and supports local farms. I use to work at this bowling alley/restaurant so I'm friends with the owners. Working here has taught me a lot about local farmers as well as cooking within the season. Instead of going to the store to buy bread, I have made it a goal to only purchase bread and bake-goods from here. The baker/co-owner, Danelle, has been a baker for like 10+ years. Her french and sourdough bread is the BEST I've ever had so this goal is pretty easy to achieve. They make the best pizza in a stone oven and even have to-go cocktails! If you ever are in Lincoln City I 100% recommend going to Olde Line to eat and hopefully bowl when things clear up.

      Here is a link to their website: https://www.oldelinelanes.com
      Ethan, the other co-owner, does catering often and they even got a mobile pizza oven so I highly recommend it if you are in need of a caterer!

    This week I focused on establishing my goal for sustainability. The main problem I would like to fix in my own life is my consumption and waste behaviors. By the end of the term, I hope to have reduced my single-use plastic consumption and support local businesses with healthy waste management. One of the biggest steps I hope to take is to replace all my hygiene products with reusable or home-made substitutes. The first step I will take is to use up all the products I have left before purchasing the sustainable option.

      Making your own hygiene products can be fun and fulfilling. Enjoy!

      I think this is a great goal. I recently bought a shampoo bar for the first time. It came in a small recyclable cardboard package and it basically looks like a bar of soap! I have used it a couple of times and I'm pretty happy with it which is kind of a big deal since I dye my hair quite often.
