    Eating less meat daily reduces the need for consumption and furthers local farming
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Social Justice Learn about Local Indigenous Practices
    What did you learn about indigenous peoples' land management that you can apply in your own life?

    Megan Reilly 4/19/2019 7:15 AM
    I have done research on the Dakota Access Pipeline and the effects of that on Indigenous spiritual land 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    Fun fact: Your brain and stomach register feelings of fullness after about 20 minutes of eating. 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 out of eating smaller portions?

    Eating slower and taking time to do that 
  • 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?

    I enjoy walking anywhere that is within a mile in the warmer weather because it gives me time to reflect on things I wouldn't unless I give myself the time to do so.
