    Let's go teachers! T-5 days! Log your actions! Sunday evening I had an amazing vegan meal! What eco challenges have you accomplished?

    I bring my stainless steel cup every morning and I try to bring to lunch to avoid taking disposable cups or cafeteria cups (which then have to be washed). 
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Stay on the Ground
    What was your process like for restructuring your trip? How can you avoid more air travel in the future?

    Dr. Jackson 2/15/2020 7:00 PM
    We always travel (usually flying) during the winter weekend. This year, we decided to stay home. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    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?

    Dr. Jackson 2/14/2020 10:48 AM
    I had a meatless breakfast wrap today at Starbucks.
  • Reflection Question
    Materials Reduce Single-Use Disposables
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    Dr. Jackson 2/14/2020 10:46 AM
    Today I went to Starbucks for a meeting. I was there 3 hours and had 4 iced teas. I brought my own cup and saved 4 plastic cups, lids, and straws from entering the landfill.
