Brandon's Actions

Recycle Everything I Can

Recycling

Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will research and recycle all materials that are accepted by local haulers or drop stations in my community, making sure to not contaminate recyclables with non-recyclables.

Use Muscle Power

Multiple Transportation Solutions

I will cut my car trip mileage by only taking necessary trips, and I will only use muscle-powered transportation for all other trips.

Keep Track of Wasted Food

Reduced Food Waste

I will keep a daily log of food I throw away during Earth Month Ecochallenge, either because it went bad before I ate it, I put too much on my plate, or it was scraps from food preparation.

Practice the 5 R's

I will Practice the "5 Rs" — refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle — to reduce my waste more than I can with just recycling alone.

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. How would you rather use this money?

    I would rather spend that money on stuff like saving for university, buying computer parts, going on vacation, and saving for future purchases like a car or even a house.

    What are some more "R's" you could add to your daily practice to reduce your waste?

    There are several different "R's" I can practice in addition to the 5 "R's" to further reduce my waste impact. For example, I can rely less on plastic goods, I can rethink the ways I use goods and what I can use, and I can respect the environment and the negative impact I have on it

    So far it's going good and I'm learning a lot about the ways I can contribute to reduce my environmental impact.
