  • Reflection Question
    Land Use Forest-Friendly Foods 1
    How is your diet currently impacting deforestation? What can you do to decrease your negative impact and increase your positive impact?

    Pamela McDougall 4/26/2019 12:14 PM
    I didn't realize just how many foods that we consume that hurt the rainforests.  I will buy coffee that is produced in an environment that is natural and not land that has been cleared to grow the coffee beans. 
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Generation Rooftop Solar Consultation
    Identify some ways in which modern human societies have become unsustainable. What kind of roles do individuals have in creating and changing practices in society?

    Pamela McDougall 4/26/2019 12:08 PM
    That we must all work together to make this world more sustainable.   Instead of taking everything from mother earth, do things naturally.  Use more solar and wind power.
    Don't be afraid to talk to others about what we can do as humankind to make a difference in this work before it is too late and we cannot do anything to reverse the damage.

    My challenge went fairly smoothly.  Even when I was out of town, I made sure I completed all my activities.  I look forward to the challenge next year!  Even small changes can make a difference!!!

    Reducing the amount of meat and coffee that we purchase will help reduce the amount of waste. It will also help reduce the amount of these products that are required.

    Materials Install a Toilet Bank
    How can your region/household prepare for changing water situations in order to become more resilient?

    Autumn Jenkinson 4/24/2019 7:23 AM
    Run less water while washing dishes and use energy efficient appliances like washing machines and dishwashers. Set a timer and take quick showers and install low flow toilets. don't run the faucet while washing your hands, get them wet and shut it off then soap up and then turn it back on and rinse, or use hand sanitizer as an alternative.

    • TAKISHA MCCLAIN 4/24/2019 2:34 PM
      I like the set the timer idea for the showers. I will start that this weekend!

  • Reflection Question
    Women and Girls Support Women-Owned Businesses
    Globally, women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. How can you better support communities by supporting women? Can you share any past experiences that may help others take action?

    Barbara Hagan 4/24/2019 6:28 AM
    Seek out the small business owners when you are spending your retail dollars.  You may pay a bit more but you will receive superior service and may even make a connection with the owner that goes beyond your initial transaction.  Small businesses are important to the world so do your part and be supportive.  I thank you for doing so.
