World Clean Up Day - Sept 18

World Cleanup Day 2021 - are you ready to join in? It's so simple (just 3 steps) and together we can make a huge impact on our environment...here's how 1) Rally some friends, family, colleagues living nearby and help together as a team in person or virtually to cleanup our communities, local streets, rivers, lakes & parks (rubbish is to be found everywhere!). Why not even engage with the local schools & Kindergarten and get the children involved too. 2) Choose the day you wish to run your team activity (our suggestion is Friday 17th Sep) and create your own shift under this activity to log your VTO hrs! 3) Share photos of you & your teams in action, in one or both of the Earthforce Slack channels (add #worldcleanupday2021): #eq-earthforce-germany #eq-earthforce-global Remember to always adhere to local Covid safety regulations!

    Have you ever had a significant experience in nature that altered your perspective or focus? If so, please describe it.

    Getting dumped, pulled underwater, and stuck in a river "hydraulic" struggling to get out for a good bit.  Makes you realize the tremendous power of nature
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Building Resilience Support Indigenous Peoples' Land Management
    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    Balance between nature/land and living beings is important to maintain the survival and lifecycle of both in coexistence

      Tonight I heard Winona LaDuke speak at a zoom panel presentation hosted by our mayor about climate change.

    Changing lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! What's next for you?

    Next up is an HVAC system in the 90s in efficiency versus the one we have that is in the 80s.  Also replacing a single pane sunroom (glass and poly) and in doing so use windows with double pane glass and LowE coating.

    What have you noticed on your daily walks? What have you enjoyed? What infrastructure changes could make your walks more enjoyable or possible?

    I have noticed the transitions starting to fall with leaves dropping and weather getting cooler.  I sometimes walk on the walking/biking/jogging path that is an old railroad track and it could be a tad wider to support everyone.

    What are the most pressing issues for women, girls, and trans/nonbinary people in your community?

    I believe in this strongly.  I was on the board and helped the AD start a local DC non profit called Bridge to Freedom to bridge gaps in information and services that hinder the growth of survivors of modern slavery,

    Action Track: Healing & Renewal Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How does your eating experience differ when practicing mindfulness?

    Tom Bullotta's avatar
    Tom Bullotta 9/29/2021 6:46 AM
    I am a notoriously fast eater having grown up with many siblings, and I find that solo mindful eating allows me to focus on the meal more and eat slower (which is healthier) while also giving me time to think and reflect.  As a family we avoid distractions and use the time for sharing and discussion

    Two days to go in the challenge! Let's finish strong but more importantly keep supporting the cause with the same or more effort going forward and nudge/educate others to do the same

    Going well.  I am eco focused but with this challenge I have picked up steam as we reach 30 days, and plan to continue after it ends to meet the challenge of doing more
  • Reflection Question
    Industry Calculate the carbon footprint of my household
    After you determined your carbon footprint, did you see what different choices you can make in order to reduce it?

    Tom Bullotta's avatar
    Tom Bullotta 9/28/2021 12:13 PM
    Eating less meat is an area I could reduce our carbon footprint further.  More virtual meetings and less client travel will also contribute by reducing plane, car, and rail travel. I did switch to a fully electric car this year which has helped my footprint.
