  • 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've tried reducing as much as I can, but I occasionally buy snacks that come with plastic wrappers, toothpaste tubes, etc. I've eliminated shopping bags, coffee cups, switched to bar soap packaged in a cardboard box. I also recently switched to a fountain pen from disposable ballpoints- the fountain pen has a cartridge that can be refilled from a glass bottle.

    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?

    People in richer countries have access to a larger market and more resources than those in poorer nations- including agricultural industries developed enough to enable mass industrial farming and the ability to refrigerate raw meat; additionally, wealthier nations tend to have a cultural focus on meat, structuring their diets around meat and have a common definition of a meal as something served with meat. Eating meat has a controversial effect on the body- some scientists contend the natural human habitat is rich in animal products and low in domesticated grains and vegetables, but others hold the consensus a plant rich diet is both more natural and more healthy. The planet sees almost all agricultural waste and pollution caused by animal agriculture- crops grown to feed to animals as well as pollution from the animal waste itself. Even deforestation is caused more by animal farming than for the classically considered markets of pulp and lumber. Pictured, hummus, kinda-greek salad, and falafel.
