“Probably the most important thing we try to do is recycle. However, it is difficult here, particularly with the glass. I find us throwing away a whole lot of glass, and I just hate to see that.”

“I try to reduce the amount of plastic I use … like bringing silverware somewhere if you know they only give [you] plastic silverware, like Chipotle. It’s great to just bring chopsticks or something like that. At the end of the day though, I think there’s a lot of more environmentally friendly practices that … myself and the Earth could benefit from me doing.”

“I’m driving around with a big bag of glass in the back of my car, trying to find a place to recycle it. I usually drive it over to my friend’s house because she pays for glass recycling.”

“With our [Big Sky Fellowship] church we have a section of the highway that we clean, and on the 22nd for Earth Day, we as a church are cleaning up that section of highway. … I’m [also] really involved with the Gallatin River Task Force and emceed their fly fishing festival last summer. … . I help out with different events that they have and [river] cleanups.”
