  • Reflection Question
    Transport Use Muscle Power
    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    Douglas Bajor 4/27/2018 2:40 PM
    We have been planning our weekend activities more carefully to reduce driving so much.
  • 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 this?

    Douglas Bajor 4/27/2018 2:39 PM
    We try to eat only what we need when we go out to dinner or make meals at home rather than super-sizing our portions.
  • Reflection Question

    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?

  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than other countries, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    Douglas Bajor 4/27/2018 2:28 PM

    My wife and I consistently encourage each other to eat better including more fruits and vegetables (especially from organic farms).
  • Reflection Question
    Food Learn the Truth About Expiration Dates
    Now that you know the difference between use by, sell by, and best by dates, how will you view expiration dates differently?

    Donna Jones 4/26/2018 9:06 AM
    I will check food quality even if it is past it's designated date.

  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Generation Watch a Video about Methane Digesters
    What does your vision of a sustainable community look like? What would need to be changed in order for such vision to become reality?

    Natalia Burgess 4/26/2018 6:53 AM
    All of us need to look for small ways to make a difference, to start.   Our buying power can  influence bigger business - that's out voice on a larger scale.

  • Natalia Burgess 4/26/2018 6:44 AM
    If we all challenge ourselves to check our cupboards, freezer and fridge to see what we can put together to make a meal.  What do we have on hand that we can use before we have to toss it.
