    How can you ensure that your virtual meetings honor your values and your company's culture?

    Since Covid -19 has changed almost all our professional lives, my company is one of many that transitioned into operating fully remotely. We have managed to keep our schedules and connections as a company, and I think that since a couple people in our company were already remote, it makes them feel more included (to know everyone is working from home too). All employees telecommute and we have meetings over phone or video conference. Since we are a tech company, we have discovered the conveniences and savings of using it ourselves! Our company values team work, and the culture really tries to follow the employees lead. We have a great group of people who keep our virtual meetings very comfortable.  It's nice to know that amongst all the unknown, we know that 30+ cars are not driving to and from the office, and not contributing to pollution!

    How is your diet currently impacting deforestation? What can you do to decrease your negative impact and increase your positive impact?

    I found that my diet consists mostly of low impacting food. I cook vegetable, tofu, chicken, and rice meals. I have cut down on red meat for my household, since the production of red meat is a high impacting food. I have been eating less diary and meat. I still eat eggs, which is unfortunately a culprit of deforestation. Even though diary, eggs, and meat are not direct impacts, the animals that produce these need a lot of feed to live. I found that although tofu is better than red meat, the production of soy is not all good. It contributes to climate change and deforestation. Moving forward I will need to pay more attention to brands and where the food I am buying is coming from/ how it is produced.  I will also have to limit my intake of all of the above, it seems almost every food has a potential to be a product of deforestation, especially after it is mass produced!

    My bike and I are getting a fine work out every day. I'm running errands far and wide around the greater Rochester Area that normally I would do in my car. It feels good! Meanwhile, we buy local organic produce or just organic produce, we compost everything and recycle everything we can. Our garbage tote sits for weeks on end without being used. I've discovered compostable kitty litter! But that goes in a separate pile.

    I'm not sure quite how to do the challenge. When looking it over I'm realizing that it isn't that I am taking on new eco friendly habits but really just listing those I already am doing. MMMmmmmm maybe that isn't the way this is supposed to work. Apologies!

    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience or enjoyment differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    Having a car and a bike poses a constant challenge. The car is the devil on one shoulder, the bike the angel on the other. I need to hurry so I best take the car, I plan ahead so I can be part of the solution in combating climate change. It's just a short trip, using the car won't matter, yes it is short and  easily be done on a bike. Just do it!I need to be the change that I want to see in this world!!!!
