    I support local businesses all the time and it made me happy that it was one of the challenges for consumption and economy section. I always make a point visit a local coffee shop once a week before work instead of going to Starbucks. My goal for the new year is to stop using straws and I actually started carrying a reusable straw in my purse.

    I watched Paris to Pittsburgh last night and it was such an eye opening documentary. I have always done my research when voting at the polls but during the next election I know that I need to get out and help canvas for the candidates that truly care about the future of this planet.

      I'm so glad you got a chance to watch it. Great point! It's crazy how little it comes up when candidates talk about issues as well. This past Florida Governors election was a bit different because of the red tide problem and people were actually seeing, smelling and being personally impacted by it therefore candidates were forced to address the issue. Keep it up Mya!
