    Vision is what I am lacking. However, sustainable future is only possible if we act responsibly and prepare our future to live sustainable life. This would have multi-fold impact on our environment and planet earth.

    I think I need to move to solar power to reduce my dependence on commercial supply of electricity in my city. This is currently challenging considering I am staying on rent.

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Composting
    Producing food that goes uneaten squanders many resources—seeds, water, energy, land, fertilizer, hours of labor, financial capital. Which of these kinds of waste most motivates you to change your behavior regarding food waste? Why?

    Hungry mouths made me thought before putting food on my plate. I should take that much food only what I can eat. So I take small portions of everything and refill with small portions.
