Ways to reduce plastic waste.

Starting a few years ago I have decided to reduce my plastic waste. Sometimes we seem to not realize just how much of waste and especially plastic waste we actually create.

In the wild

Dream: I was at a retreat, in the wild, like a jungle but like in a New Zealand setting. Mom and others decided to stay and I decided to keep going somewhere. There were alligators in the small river, me and another girl waited for them to pass them we continued our journey. We ended…

Dark nights
