    To my team mates thanks for helping out for our event. Hope everyone learned something interesting and maybe a way to help with the environment and the future.
  • 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 eating smaller portions?

    Eating less leads to losing weight

    Land Use Choose Better Wood Products
    Beyond carbon sequestration, what other benefits do forests offer you personally?

    Julie Eaton 4/19/2019 3:32 PM
    Trees help us breathe. They keep us cool. They keep the earth cool. They make it rain. They block the wind. They refill aquifers. They help fight flooding. They clean up soil and air. They create medicine. They create jobs. They muffle noise pollution. They help us explore and relax.

    Land Use Buy Bamboo
    Are bamboo alternatives readily available in your community? If not, what are other sustainable alternatives?

    We are using paper straws now. There are also edible silverware you can buy. Bamboo is available as well here in Seattle.
  • Reflection Question
    Land Use Learn about Temperate Forests
    As you learn more about the scope and seriousness of the environmental challenges we face, what impact does that have on your thinking and actions? What are the parts that feel overwhelming? What parts help you feel hopeful?

    Julie Eaton 4/19/2019 3:17 PM
    I hope that everyone that participated around the nation has learned at least one way to help with the environmental challenges we face and to try to make a difference in our lives and future lives.

    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?

    Julie Eaton 4/19/2019 9:23 AM
    I think by deceasing some of my meat intake and eating more fruits and vegetables. Also by purchasing food that comes in recyclable packaging would help.

  • Julie Eaton 4/19/2019 8:22 AM
    This has been very educational to read and learn about how to help the environment. It has also helped to use less and waste less.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Support Local Food Systems
    Dependable fresh food, supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these (or other) advantages inspire you the most?

    Local farmers are awesome
  • Reflection Question

    How can you advocate for transportation systems which minimize environmental impact while also meeting human needs?

    Julie Eaton 4/18/2019 8:32 AM
    Saves money for people, save on fuel, car maintenance, insurance. Also less time in traffic. Saves on pollution. Saves on time.
  • Reflection Question
    Buildings and Cities Research Retrofitting Incentives
    How can you share what you have learned in your research with others?

    Julie Eaton 4/08/2019 9:24 AM
    I found out that the cities in Washington State offer a lot of incentives for home owners as well as multi family or even commercial buildings.
