  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Know Your Produce
    What surprised you about the two produce lists? How will you use these lists for your grocery shopping? Have you used these lists before?

    José Arturo Chicharro Mendicoa 4/27/2022 12:26 AM
    Before I read these lists I had a little knowledge about it, but it surprised me to find out onions and avocados are among the "Clean 15" and strawberries and peaches are the bad guys.

    I will try to recall this whenever I make a grocery shopping list.

    It allows me to stay more focused on my work when I have to while enjoying every other aspect of my life without worrying about anything else.


  • Reflection Question
    Economy & Communities Online Energy Audit
    What most interested or surprised you about your energy audit?

    At first I believed it would be more expensive or rough to make the shift, but then I got trained by an specialist from my area and now I am ready to take the next steps.
  • Reflection Question
    Education & Livelihood Take Emerson’s Sustainability Training
    What did you think of the training? What new concepts did you learn?

    It was quite interesting and educational. We received many and very structured tips easy to follow in order to proceed ourselves with independence.
  • Reflection Question

    You can realize there is a direct relation between sedentary and obese people, also with some diseases.

    People who practice any sport or physical activity in a weekly basis are less often to suffer most diseases.

  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Take 5-Minute Or Less Showers

    José Arturo Chicharro Mendicoa 4/25/2022 12:57 AM
    When taking a shower, I am used to wait like 1-2 minutes before my water gets warm. Instead of wasting all this cold water, I can keep it in a bucket so I can reuse it for example to water my plants.

    Keep my house faucets closed as much time as possible. I have always tried to reduce my water consumption to the limit.

    Be always using a dishwasher machine, it saves much more water than a traditional way of doing it with your own hands,

    From now on, I will try to share my daily trip to work with a colleague so we both reduce our carbon footprint.

    I always choose to take a walk or public transport whenever it is possible instead of driving my car,
