    I ordered recyclable paper for my house, but taking this a step further I can suggest for my dad to order recyclable paper for his entire office, as they use a lot of paper.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Advocate For Greener Vehicles
    How does advocating for green vehicles in your community connect to your values? How might you be able to get others involved in advocating for the shift to fuel-efficient vehicles?

    I convinced my parents for our next car to be completely electric, so starting next month our own car will be fuel efficient. 
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Go for a Daily Walk
    What have you noticed on your daily walks? What have you enjoyed? What infrastructure changes could make your walks more enjoyable or possible?

    I see new people every day and I notice how happy everyone is to be outside in such nice weather. I enjoy allowing my dog to roam around, rather than taking her on a car ride. 
  • 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?

    Panagiota Toliopoulos's avatar
    Panagiota Toliopoulos 4/18/2021 9:48 PM
    Less overeating, which is sometimes a problem which smaller portions prevent along with wasting less money on food that will be thrown away.
