  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Get Involved in the Water Justice Movement
    Who is affected by water insecurity in your region? How are they affected? How are you impacted by water insecurity?

    Short Answer - EVERYONE! Everyone is impacted in one way or another. Individual households would be negatively impacted in the health and safety of daily living. Just imagine no water for drinking or cooking? No washing of individuals or laundry. Not a pleasant thought. Outside of the homes consider the lack of water for crop production or the raising of livestock. In no short time the planet would quickly die.

    Some of the barriers holding women back are the difficulties of balancing our careers and our families. Although we’ve made strides we are still looked at as the primary caregiver, not for primary earners. This perception makes it difficult for women to be taken seriously as we seek to level out the playing field.

    I had no idea that the average person uses 330-660 pounds of  single use plastic a year  I will strive  to reduce this even further. I’m doing pretty good over all but can further reduce my footprint.

    In order to reduce the lawn watering we have recently planted several boxwood hedges around the house. Not only does it reduce the need for lawn attention, it also is aesthetically pleasing. Planning to create a rock garden next.

      Rock gardens are so pretty. We had one growing up, I use to love to sit on the rocks outside as a kid!

    I believe most would agree that "It is not what you say. It is how you say it." This ties directly into our Culture Framework and kindness. I encourage everyone to do some reading on the difference between being nice, and being kind. The world would be a better place if people understood this.

    Why is it important to take care of pollinators? Do you have a favorite pollinator?

    Growing up my oldest brother raised Honey Bees for 4-H. I now realize the health benefits of how local honey helps individuals with allergies. Local honey helps people to develop their immunity to local pollens that promote allergies.

    By practicing a work life balance I am creating a more sustainable life for myself by allowing me to spend more time outside. I love to tinker in the garden and the fresh air is way better than sitting in front of a computer or a TV.

    This is my 3rd time participating in the Ecochallege with CLEAResult. I have to admit, it seems this time around that there is more interaction with the participants. I greatly appreciate the company coming together for a good cause.

    I always reuse the plastic bags from the grocery store. They come in handy to line trash cans and to use in the kitchen to toss away carrot peelings, egg shells, etc. Also keep a roll in the car for emergencies.

      Samantha, it is easy to do. Takes a bit on time at the forefront but saves so much time and space in the end.

    With 5-minute or less showers reducing your water footprint, what do you plan to add next to your water conservation habits?

    I have also engaged my husband in this practice. To further our impact we have begun using the dishwasher every other day instead of daily. We also capture any 'extra' water to utilize in watering the inside and outside plants.
