Thank you @simplystraws #pledgeagainstplasticstraws
Hey all! Hope you all are enjoying your labour day long weekend!! Lately I always notice videos and posts regarding our plastic waste problem!!! We all seriously need to wake up & start protecting this earth, our home. We only have 1 life but during this one like we’re paving the roads for the next generations to come. I can’t think about how the world will change by the time my little one is my age. Did you know it takes up to SIX decades for a piece of plastic to decompose & some up to millions of years?? That means we literally still have plastic effecting our environment from when it was first made in the 1800s that makes me sick. 
Plastic is a massive issue for our planet, it saddens me when people turn their head to the matter. Myself I can be bad for it, if I forget my water bottle at home while I’m doing errands I’ll buy a water bottle or another reusable one but still there’s always a ripetide sometimes good sometimes bad but I just think If I’m only ONE person & there’s zillions of other people doing the same thing and majority of the time it doesn’t make it to Sarcan or in the recycling bin. “The energy it takes to make ONE plastic bottle could recycle TEN plastic bottles.” ♻️ I watched a video & it got me thinking, this passed week I bought my little some clothes for next summer because there’s so many sales on right now so why not stock up now. 😝 
BUT then it sent me down the “rabbit hole” and I started thinking each item of clothing has what? A price tag and with that price tag is a tiny piece of plastic holding it on, & not only that but usually it has a long sticker saying the size multiple times because it’s extremely necessary too, right?  Or the hangers man, the hangers’ are ALL plastic. 
Everything, everywhere around us is plastic. People always say, “the little amount of change we make now won’t have much of an impact” but I believe in the domino effect and if there’s a million people trying to make that change happen that’s enough! Maybe that little amount of change  will help guide more people into switching to a minimalist & Zero waste lifestyle. **See the rest in the comments! If you know who made this photo let me know!!!!

8) REUSE OLD FABRICS TO MAKE TABLE CLEANING CLOTHES
This table linen collection from Viva Terra is handmade in India by artisans who carefully collect pieces of vintage and upcycled fabrics to create elaborate patterns and colors.

Each piece is different from the next because they are each hand sewn from the scraps leftover during the process of hand making Indian saris.

Thank you to @simplystraws for donating a $25 gift card to the #BBB19 silent auction! The n 2012, the Sladics' family began Simply Straws, a reusable drinking straw alternative to the common plastic straws. With passion to educate the public on the effects of plastic pollution, and a commitment to work with organizations minimizing plastics, they began. But they didn't stop at straws! Their sleeves are carefully crafted from fair-trade hemp, flax, and organic cotton; their web hosting and printing are powered by eco energy, and they use non-toxic dyes and FSC-certified 100% post-consumer recycled paper for business materials. Oh, and all of their packaging is compostable. If they were any more green, they'd be a tree! Bonus green points: Simply Straws is also a @1percentftp member! Get your tickets and bid! https://rockymountainwild.org/bbb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I did a thing! 👌🏼 Here’s my good deed for the day. 😃If we don’t start now then we’ll never save the world. 🗺 Get 4 stainless steel straws + a cleaning brush for only $6.99! 😮 A small price to pay for saving our environment! 💯 Visit oceanlifestraws.com or follow @oceanlifestraws for more information. #PledgeAgainstPlasticStraws 🛑
7) Reusable Sandwich Wraps
Packed school lunches may seem innocent enough, but when you multiply them by each student at your child’s school and each school in your country, the amount of single-use plastic waste adds up quickly.

6)Start keeping your calendar digitally. 
It uses less paper. And instead of Post-it notes, try using your Smartphone’s many reminders or list-making apps.

5) ONLINE READING APPS
Apart from planting trees and volunteering, one of my favorite pastimes is reading books. 
But according to some studies -- The carbon footprint of a single book (weighing 500 g) is approximately 1.2 kg CO2. The total greenhouse gas emissions caused by the production and use of one tonne of books amount to approximately 2,322 kg 
One way to carry out this hobby while also reducing the carbon footprint is switching over to ebooks or online reading apps. 
So download your favorite books now without having to buy any more. •

My name is Elizabeth Beeman (She/Her/Hers). I’m majoring in Math Education with a minor in Human Development and Family Studies. I’m from Owen County, IN. 
At State, I’m a member of Honors College and involved with C.H.I.L.L. (Colleagues Helping Implement Lifelong Learning), Masterworks Choir, and EcoReps! 
My advice for first-year students is to be willing to leave your comfort zone, and understand that your comfort zone is different than others. Don’t compare your involvement to that of others, instead work to make yourself happy and successful. 
I can’t wait to see Sycamores back on campus for #StateWelcome19!
