    I have done so, but difficult to get rest of family to adopt similar practices - particularly around concerns over hygiene. Continual awareness reminders is having impact.

    Living in the UK, I cannot recommend strongly enough for EVERYONE and I mean everyone should watch the EarthShot series of programmes launched by Prince William and the wider team responsible for the five pillars of success (not dissimilar to HP in that respect). It has already raised some very timely reminders for me, but also enlightened me to just how much more we can do if we all make a little effort and work together to make the small changes add up to something truly spectacular.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Prevent Recycling Contamination
    What have you learned about what is accepted by local haulers for recycling, what you can drop off or ship to certain places, and what is not recyclable in your area? What is the most difficult part of recycling for you?

    segregating food waste is probably the hardest thing to ensure recyclables are 'clean' enough for domestic recovery. I have reminded all my family (including children) about importance of cleaning food containers before placing them in recycling.
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Healing and Renewal Go for a Daily Walk Outside
    Fresh air and movement are good for our entire being and can help us think more clearly and creatively. How does taking a walk each day affect yourself and/or your work?

    Walking every morning is a way to start the day off right by soaking in the sights and sounds of nature. It centers me and bring clarity to my day. At this point if I don't walk, I feel like something is missing.

    Great challenge that we should work on the entire year!
  • Reflection Question
    Energy Encourage my company and/or organization to measure and manage their carbon footprint
    What else can you do to hold your organization accountable to implement sustainable practices?

    I am pushing for net zero carbon and net zero waste strategies not just for HP's principal owned, occupied sites, but also working up a project charter to capture their leased estate as well - typically a VERY hard 'sell'...also supporting JLL's development of our own journey and how to develop playbooks and best practice template to apply to future client accounts.
  • Reflection Question
    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    tough to change personal habits to reduce showing times - particularly with early starts and long days...
