    My husband and I went to the outlets yesterday, and, for this visit, I created a list of what the family "needed."  By keeping to this list, our trip remained focused on the "needs" and avoided purchasing "wants."  This approach made our trip more efficient, more budget friendly, and more environmentally friendly.

    Ashley, 

    Thank you for organizing this ecoteam.  This opportunity has helped me to thoughtfully and intentionally adjust my environmental behaviors.  I also enjoyed reading and learning from others' posts.

    Thanks!

    My family likes the single serving appeal of the Keurig, but I'm not a fan of the plastic single serving K-cups.  Therefore, I purchased the reusable inserts for the Keurig, so everyone can still create their own single serving of cocoa or coffee, but without the waste.
