    Transportation Drive Less
    How has your access to various kinds of transportation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    The use of ride share programs while traveling makes navigation of unfamiliar areas stress free. This also has allowed me to be more willing to explore more of the cities visited.

    How can you make your home more energy efficient?

  • Reflection Question
    Energy Turn it off
    How is electricity generated where you live? How does it impact the environment, animals, and humans?

    Ryan Pennington 4/30/2019 3:58 PM
    Electricity is either produced using hydro, nuclear, or NG steam combustion. The hydro power plant and nuclear facility uses the construction of one of the largest man made lakes in the US. This provides habitat for many plant and wildlife species. 
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    Sharon Fulton 4/30/2019 1:40 PM
    I could donate the items that I don't plan to use/wear again to charity organizations instead of leaving them in the closet to take up space.

    I could also repair a couple of items that could be used if they worked correctly.

    I could set up a better recycling system in my garage to sort items that go to the trash collector so they can recycle cardboard, glass, etc.
