    Only a couple more days left in the eco-challenge! You are all doing great in staying on top of your actions and making a difference to your daily lives to help our planet. I hope you will be able to carry out these actions throughout the rest of the year!
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    By spending more time inside, you miss so much of what is going on outside, the changes that are constantly happening in our environment. I also believe the more time we spend on a screen, the more we take for granted of what we have outside. With nicer weather, it's easy to spend time outside so I look forward to continuing to do that as summer approaches!

    We are just about half way through Earth Month and the challenge. in the beginning, the challenge seems easy but slowly it gets a little more difficult as the convivences of single-use plastic come into play. I'm looking forward to seeing all the different goals we've completed as a team at the end of the month!
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Practice Mindfulness
    What was it like to practice mindfulness? If this is a practice for you already, what was something new you understood in practicing during Earth Month?

    Practicing mindfulness is not something I have tried in the past. Over time I've realized that not only does it help relax me but it also helps keep me more aware of my daily actions.
  • Reflection Question
    Education & Livelihood Share Your Eco Habits
    How do you create new sustainability-related habits or change bad habits?

    Gracie Hoidal's avatar
    Gracie Hoidal 4/04/2022 9:00 AM
    It's a lot easier to change bad habits when you have people changing with you! My house has had trouble composting in the past so we are all committing to do better and hold each other accountable.
