Macy's Actions

Food, Agriculture, and Land Use

Smaller Portions

Reduced Food Waste

I will use smaller plates and/or serve smaller portions when dishing out food.

COMPLETED 10
DAILY ACTIONS

Transportation

Go for a Daily Walk

Walkable Cities

I will take a walk for 30 minutes each day and take note of the infrastructure that makes walking more or less enjoyable, accessible, and possible.

COMPLETED 14
DAILY ACTIONS

Electricity

Communicate the need to Price Carbon

Thousands of economists agree that we need to put a price on carbon pollution. There's a 'carbon cashback' bill in Congress introduced this week in the House that will do that - returning money to households. We need to mobilize around this as a best first step (and do everything else in this challenge, too!)

I will be Less Material in a Material World

If I live on campus I'll follow FreeUse on Insta (@bard.freeuse) (and I'll donate there as well) in support of a circular economy.  Away from Bard I will find sustainable clothing options, avoiding fast fashion retailers, valuing long-lived clothing and supporting Bard-born orgs like Thrift to Fight and Cahoots.
