    Transport Research and Consider Switching to a Hybrid or Electric Vehicle
    Reducing (or eliminating) exhaust emissions and improving public health are two benefits of green vehicles. What other motivators inspire you to consider switching to a more fuel-efficient vehicle?

    ORCA Lily🥡 2/28/2020 5:18 AM
    Many people already have a more fuel efficiant vehicle, so that motivates me to make my parents get opne

    Land Use Forest-Friendly Foods 1
    How is your diet currently impacting deforestation? What can you do to decrease your negative impact and increase your positive impact?

    Chocolate is very bad because a cocoa bean is grown in the forest and you need to chop down stuff to reach the cocoa. This is the same with coffee. Also, beef, eggs, and dairy is not good because cows produce methane and it goes into the air and pollutes it. I can stop eating so much chocolate and telling my family not to drink so much coffee. I can also try going vegan and not having any animal products. If everyone does these little things, it will save a lotttttttt of forests
