We exited the golden state with an incredible drive through Death Valley National Park and ended up in Las Vegas, NV. Las Vegas is a hub of consumerism and waste. Walking around the city is alarming. However, where there is darkness, there is also light. Some of the people we connected with in Las Vegas were taken aback by the Branching Together display. A couple stopped by, and one of them was holding a plastic water bottle. She said that she knew and felt ready to make a change. Her vow was to stop using plastic water bottles, plastic shopping bags AND plastic straws! It has been amazing to speak with people like her who are finally deciding to take the plunge toward sustainable living through implementing daily habits. Next stop - Gallup, NM!
Until next time,
Cheyenne and Susie
