    What area of climate action are you most passionate about and why?

    An area of climate action I'm passionate about is composting! I love and preach Project Oscar in Boston, which is a municipal program that makes composting accessible for everyone - even if you live in an apartment in the city without on-site access to green space. The best parts are how the program reduces landfill and food waste while also directly nourishing our local green spaces and parks - a win win!

    My earth month ecochallenge 2022 is going great! As the name suggests, making changes can be challenging, however I like how the contest is made manageable with daily check-ins. Proud of my team and all participants for our commitment to make positive global change!
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Reduce Animal Product Consumption
    What was the tastiest meatless or vegan meal you ever had or had recently? Did you make it? Can you share a recipe?

    Rachel Rosenberg's avatar
    Rachel Rosenberg 4/11/2022 12:53 PM
    Breakfast is an easy way to go meatless because there are so many delicious and simple alternative ways to get protein at breakfast. Some east ways of ditching breakfast sausage or bacon include: eggs, yogurt, or smoothies/protein shakes.

    What was it like to mend your clothing? If you are skilled at mending, what tips do you have for others?

    Mending your own clothing is very satisfying! It allows you to turn something broken into something useable again, which is great because then I extend it's life and don't need to throw it out. New to the mending world I'm definitely not skilled, but highly recommend following along with an online tutorial as you get your sea legs.
  • Reflection Question
    Education & Livelihood Work-Life Balance
    How does practicing a work-life balance create a more sustainable life for you? How might it contribute to sustainability more broadly?

    Practicing work-life balance creates a more sustainable life because it allows you to recharge to prevent burnout. It also contributes to sustainability more broadly by encouraging people to unplug, be present, and focus on what's best for their bodies and minds - which more often that not is getting plugged into nature and other healthy habits. 
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Practice A Sharing Economy
    What benefits does the sharing economy offer to you and others? If you are a little shy to try, what could be a first step for you?

    One man's trash is another man's treasure! The benefits of a sharing economy are many: reducing landfill waste, reducing the carbon footprint of shipping an item to someone, forming community with neighbors, saving money, etc. A great first step is to join your local "Buy Nothing" group on Facebook!
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Know Your Produce
    What surprised you about the two produce lists? How will you use these lists for your grocery shopping? Have you used these lists before?

    Rachel Rosenberg's avatar
    Rachel Rosenberg 4/08/2022 8:37 AM
    While I was not to see many soft-flesh/thin-skin fruits and veggies on the dirty dozen list because they lack as much natural pest protection, I was surprised to see that kiwis and mushrooms made it on the clean 15 list because I also think of those foods as not having as much natural protection. I've never heard of these lists before, but will keep them in mind and aim to buy organic and clean going forward.

    Climate & Ecosystems Reduce Single-Use Plastics
    What plastic or single-use items do you regularly use? What did you substitute or could be substituted?

    Instead of using a disposable plastic cup at the office water cooler, today I brought in a glass water bottle. This reduces single-use waste and plastic pollution. Opting for a plastic-free water bottle like my glass one is ideal because it reduces plastic pollution in the long-run, too!

      This is great, Rachel! I am a big fan of reusable water bottles as well. Out of curiosity, how many plastic bottles a week would you say you've stopped purchasing since switching over to your glass one?

    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    Rachel Rosenberg's avatar

    When people become disconnected from nature, they are less likely to understand it's importance and advocate for it. This leads to less positive societal change. Likewise, those who become disconnected are less likely to enjoy the benefits of being in nature, and more likely to suffer the negative impacts of being socially disconnected.
