  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Practice Mindfulness
    What was it like to practice mindfulness? If this is a practice for you already, what was something new you understood in practicing during Earth Month?

    For me, practicing mindfulness was a new experience since I did not fully understand the process and how could change the way I feel or perceive. During the Earth Month challenge, I started my path, where I found a lot of things I did not know about myself, helping me shape those thoughts and ideas in a better constructive form.

    What was surprising about the ingredients in your cleaning supplies, personal care, and pet products?

    I think one big surprise about those products that are for cleaning was noticing how dangerous they can become for our skin and body in general if we get close to them, sometimes they have certain chemicals compounds that are not save for us; so interesting…I always wonder why it’s essential to wear gloves and even protection glasses when using certain cleaning supplies. 
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Spend Time Outside
    What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time inside and on screens?

    On screens and Inside, today of our society; if we expend too much time without being in contact with nature or just expending time appreciating the beauty of the moring, then we will tend to forget their value, we forget about been humans, been those that love exploring and feeling and that connection with nature. In the end, I consider that one big implication is losing that part of us, ending with a serious problem of understanding how to treat our planet and our impact been here.

    Why is art an important way for you to express sustainability values?

    Sometimes is difficult to understand or talk about what we feel in relation to our planet or ecosystems and I consider art as a universal via for better transmission of ideas and feelings, because we can project our values without even being there, just with the right dedication.

    The tastiest vegan meal I had recently was a plate composed of cuscus, with pico de Gallo, meatless beef, yellow platano, and avocado with pesto salad.  So good!
