  • Reflection Question
    Economy & Communities Learn About & Practice Sustainable Fashion
    How can you express your personality, creativity, and values in ways that don't require fast fashion or buying more clothes and accessories?

    This question surprised me a bit because in my opinion fast fashion / trendy clothes and accessories don't express ones personality or creativity at all. To me, those things express the opposite. Style is something I care about, but I think we all need to be mindful of how much weight or value we give to it. 
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    There are many implications affecting physical, emotional, social, and mental well being. I believe we're designed for connection - with nature, with people, with ourselves. All of which are more naturally occurring outside - away from tech.
