  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    By specifically choosing smaller plates, I can make sure that i eat smaller portions and come back for seconds if i choose, and avoid producing avoidable food waste.
  • Reflection Question
    Land Use Buy Bamboo
    Are bamboo alternatives readily available in your community? If not, what are other sustainable alternatives?

    Nate Gray 12/18/2019 7:08 AM
    bamboo is a great alternative because it is easier to grow, more sustainable, easier to shape, and means you don't have to cut down trees, which are natural carbon sinks. Buy bamboo guys!

    By taking walks around my neighbourhood i have found more green spaces which i wasn't previously aware of. i have found much nicer, greener and more secluded paths to walk my dog, and have taken lots of mental notes about the way my neighbourhood is built.
