  • Reflection Question
    Transport Advocate For Greener Vehicles
    How does advocating for green vehicles in your community connect to your values? How might you be able to get others involved in advocating for the shift to fuel-efficient vehicles?

    Penguin Manav 2/20/2020 3:10 PM
    I can put posters telling to buy electric vehicles. Electric vehicles also have a benefit because you do not need to pay for gas.
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Generation Support Companies Leading in Green Energy
    Every dollar you put into solar or wind is a dollar not put into traditional financial institutions. You'll also be bolstering the fossil fuel divestment movement, too. Name some companies you know that invest in green energy. How can you support them?

    Penguin Manav 2/19/2020 2:46 PM
    BP is a company that invests in green energy. We can support them by donating money.
