  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

    Rebeca Höltken 4/30/2019 3:28 AM
    I avoid single use cups because they are harming the environment so bad.

    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    Arvindan Chandran 4/29/2019 7:15 AM
    a. Weather - country is huge. And therefore, the Distribution of places with different weather Patterns. 

    b. Vegetarian Options should be made tastier and attractive. 

    c. Make visible the ease of Digestion and the good you do to your Body by helping it.

    Water 5-Minute Showers
    Five minute showers are an impressive step toward reducing your water footprint. What is the next step you can take?

    Rebeca Höltken 4/25/2019 10:47 AM
    Five minute showers are enough at the camping taking a shower with the coin for 5 minutes you do not have more time either.
  • Reflection Question
    Energy Choose LED Bulbs
    Changing lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! In what other ways can you exercise your civic duty to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions?

    Rebeca Höltken 4/25/2019 10:44 AM
    We have to rethink the way we used to live and work. There are so many options to reduce carbon emission.
  • Reflection Question
    Water Say No to Plastic Straws
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    Rebeca Höltken 4/25/2019 10:43 AM
    Vegetable bags could be substituted by permanent used bags and straws, you really do not need them except for a cocktail. And coffee cups could be used for more than one time.
