    A couple years ago, I made the switch to being pescatarian after learning how harmful the meat industry was to the environment. However, I depended on fish as my main source of protein and it was easy to substitute anywhere my family or friends wanted to eat out.

Other motivations that inspire me to switch to a fuel efficient vehicle is the fact that cutting back on oil will help to find other alternatives that have better efficiency and less risks. Also, at...

    I went to volunteer at Nourish LA this past sunday. It has been a great opportunity to help out the LA community, a place which I started to value a lot more my senior year after visiting all parts of the city. All the volunteers were so friendly and everyone seemed to have a great time. After moving so much produce, I realized the amount of...
