  • Reflection Question
    Transport Use Muscle Power
    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience or enjoyment differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    I love taking walks and I do so as often as possible, not only to get exercise but to enjoy the outdoors which is soothing to me. I also walk to the local farmers market to get local produce once a week. I like supporting my local farmers. My dream is to live so close to work I can bike to work on a regular basis.

    Today I walked to the farmers market and used a bag I crochet to cart the groceries. No plastics used and I reduced my carbon footprint while getting exercise

    I crocheted a coffee sleeve to replace the disposable one. I also did not take a bag at any of the stores I visited today running errands

    I supported local and bought fresh fruits, veggies and herbs from my local farmers market. I used a canvas shopping bag so no plastics were used- not even in packaging 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    Today I had a Caesar salad for lunch. 
  • Reflection Question
    Materials Reduce Single-Use Disposables
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    I replaced plastic wrap with beeswax wraps for food storage

    Today I started using Terra Wash for my laundry instead of TIDE Pods that come in plastic packaging
