    I went on walks at Heritage State Park, which is enjoyable because it's near the water. The only thing I didn't enjoy was that there was an area under construction.

    I try to only drive when it is necessary, but Fall River isn't a walkable city, so I need to drive the majority of the time. I do enjoy taking walks sometimes, especially now that it's warmer out.

    I forgot to log last week, but the weather was nice so I went on walks with my dog at Heritage State Park

    European nations are far ahead the United States in creating sustainable scooter, bike, and walking friendly cities. Sweden and France have initiatives to transform their cities into areas where people only ever need to walk or bike a max of 15 minutes to get to all local amenities including grocery stores, banks, and work. They are creating...

    I enjoy daily hour long walks on the eastern side of Providence where there are lots of plants and trees lining the sidewalks. It masks/ protects from car exhaust very well. I avoid roads where there are less trees, too much traffic because of the smell. India point park and bike parks are other areas that I frequent. They are quieter,...

    I can drive with my neighbors to do our grocery shopping and we often commute together to get our takeout food.

    Increasing the sustainable aquaculture practices increases the medium and long term profit margin of aquaculture farms which will allow more aquaculture investment. The faster farms begin to convert to sustainable practices, the more they will save on energy and further invest into more aquaculture farms. This is projected to also reduce the...

    Before purchasing an item, think about how the item affects or has affected the environment. For example, when you buy a shirt, you might want to consider the company and how they care for the environment. Are they doing their best to limit the carbon offset set out when producing their products? When purchasing a car, you might want to lean...
