  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Support Local Food Systems
    Dependable fresh food, supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these (or other) advantages inspire you the most?

    I like the smell and the taste of fresh food for sure. It is certainly than what I buy at the supermarket. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. How would you rather use this money?

    I would rather donate this money to a non profit organization re-sustainability instead of throwing it way.
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    I reviewed again the recycling requirements in my town in Italy again today. I have not always been good a recycling unfortunately. I am recycling everything now in Italy and will need to start doing the same in Abz :)

    I spent 30 minutes learning about the expiration dates on the food packages. I did learn a few new things I was not aware before, such as expiry date is not a must but can still be consumed if the product is still good. and expiry date is something to be looked at for infant products only.
