    Economy & Communities Create A Readiness Plan
    What was it like to create a readiness plan? Did you find other resources you could share?

    I wasn't able to create a readiness plan, but I am setting a goal to create one with my daughter, Lucy, by October's EcoChallenge.  I thought the resource provide as part of this task was simple and effective. Looking forward to figuring it out with her.

  • Reflection Question

    What is one way you will reduce your carbon foorprint? What is a practice you already have that helps you reduce your carbon footprint?

    Top of my list is reducing my consumption of meat. This is a tough one because my family loves to meat especially bacon. I need to take the bold step of making a non-meat option to go along with meat, so that I can personally reduce my consumption. It will be a long-term endeavor to change the eating habits of my family. 

    My family is very plastic conscience and try to minimize buying process goods. This is still a work in progress, but we always try to avoid buying single-use plastics.

    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?

    Meditation is such a healthy act for me, but outside of the EcoChallenge, I don't set aside the time to do it. My hope is that having done it a few times during this challenge will motivated me to continue practicing it outside of Earth Month.

    Why is art an important way for you to express sustainability values?

    Art is also outside of my comfort zone and is often a struggle to finish. So, I am more satisfied with the finish piece because of the difficult journey I travelled. Having sustainability as the theme of the art then makes it all the more meaningful.
