  • 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?

    my transportation choices can have a large impact on my social engagement with my community  because If I choose to drive myself all the time then I wouldn't meet anyone new and actually look at a potentially nice view on the way to work or school. My experience would differ from walking or riding transit compared to driving because if it's a really nice day outside then I can experience the nice warm morning air and if I rode transit I could meet potentially new friends.

    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?

    zack page 2/25/2020 5:20 PM
    people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places because they have the financial stability to obtain meat which is usually expensive and they are usually more educated about the benefits in protein while eating it. Eating more meat effects our bodies in a positive way between our body needs it to get stronger. I believe it helps our planet in a way by recycling the animal that's been living off earths surface. It could effect other people negatively because they will call it animal cruelty and. these people are most likely vegans.

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

    after changing 2 lightbulbs around the house I made sure that the rest of them were stable and  not in any danger of bursting or  flaming out.
