  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Zero-waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

    it depends on what part of the vegetable might be thrown away
    certain parts should not be eaten because they can be a choking hazard
    if it is something that can be cut or reduced in size, then you can cut it and it to a meal
    it may not sound very appetizing, but, certain parts could either be incorporated into a soup stock, or placed into a juicer and once it has been turned into a liquid you can use it as a garnish
    if for whatever reason you cannot consume a portion of a vegetable, then you can either feed it to the local fauna in your neighborhood, or, you can use it to make compost
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use More Fruits And Veggies
    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    if people eat less meat then they will eventually purchase less meat
    if people purchase less meat, then to make up for the loss in revenue, meat processing plants will have to reduce the amount of products they produce in a given year
    which will in turn, will reduce the amount of co2 meat processing plants emit

  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Calculate the carbon footprint of my household
    After you determined your carbon footprint, did you see what different choices you can make in order to reduce it?

    to an extent
    i live in an old house so the level of insolation is rather poor
    unfortunately i do not have the necessary funds to remodel at this current moment in time
    so for the moment the only way i can effectively reduce my carbon footprint, is to alter my diet, and decrease the amount of meat i consume
