    Do you have any tips for others on finding locations that accept products for safe disposal?

    Ask your local pharmacy for help in disposing of any unused or old medication before throwing it in the trash! They're always glad to take back medications and dispose of them properly, or point you in the right direction for the same purposes.

    How can spending more time outdoors enhance your sense of place? Was there a new place in your region that was exciting to learn about and visit?

    Spending time outdoors helps me to realize the community and land that I live on and it brings the eco-conscious side of me into the present space. I have heard a lot about Shikellemy and finally took some time to go out and explore this past weekend!

    I don't have a recipe because it happens to be a guessing game every time, but I have a vegan chili recipe that is absolutely delicious
  • Reflection Question
    Climate & Ecosystems Support Local Pollinators
    Why is it important to take care of pollinators? Do you have a favorite pollinator?

    Pollinators are the organism that makes the world go round. without them we would have a hard time finding many resources like crops and fruits. My favorite pollinator is the honey bee!

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

    Spending so much time on screens becomes a problem when it turns into ignorance of the world around us. We become oblivious of our impacts on the Earth and those organisms around us. 
  • Reflection Question

    What plastic or single-use items do you regularly use? What did you substitute or could be substituted?

    Water bottles are the bane of my existence. buying and then also putting to use, a reusable water bottle reduces an immense amount of plastic for me per day.
