Support Local Food Systems

Action Track: Accelerating Solutions

Telepresence

Completed
One-Time Action

Health and Education

Spend Time Exercising

When you exercise outdoors, you reduce your carbon footprint because you are minimizing the use of energy-consuming machines. Exercising in your home is a good way to start the reduction process, as it does not require any travel in your vehicle. However, we typically turn on lights, fans, and/or televisions to accomplish our workout, and those items do contribute to our carbon footprint.

    Hi All,
    Wanted to share a learning opportunity I came across:
    Recent ESG webcast recording from Kristen Sullivan and Christine Robinson - Advancing ESG disclosure and expectations webcast to understand the increasing ESG expectations on companies, what is on the horizon, and how companies should be preparing.
    Please let me know your thoughts :)

    On my daily walk today, I particularly enjoyed and appreciated how green and lush my neighborhood is. I am grateful for infrastructure such as sidewalks.  Having streets without cars would make my walks more enjoyable is. Please share with me your experience?

      We live in the country-side and our walks take us next to fields over rolling hills with lovely sunsets. Other than the exercise, walking especially with a friend or family is a great way to tech-detoxify. It also allows you to bond with the company walking with you. Walking in a natural setting allows you to inhale fresh air and enjoy nature, the chirping birds, blue skies with puffy clouds and  sunsets.
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Smaller Portions
    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 from eating/serving smaller portions?

    Saved money by not throwing away food that otherwise provides me with nutrients.
