    I want to learn more about how feeding my dog and the money I spend on dog food increases my water footprint. That was 190 points of the 850 I received in the calculator. Wow!
  • Reflection Question

    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?

    I feel very grounded when I am outside. It makes me appreciate the beauty around me. I live 3 blocks from the lakefront. It's the best!

    I will create less waste when cooking. Use pieces of food that I might not normally use to make veggie stocks and soups. I eat vegan and compost waste

    What do you enjoy about supporting others who are learning?

    I have always loved teaching. I went to school to be a math teacher, but the salary didn't support the life I wanted to live. I also started at a bad time. Tutoring allows me to continue doing the work I love. Helping students learn math is a win for me because there is a stigma around math. I want to break that!

    Rather than ordering in food, I can make whole food meals that are healthy. My wife is fully vegan and I am working my way towards that. Eating sustainable food that leaves less of a carbon footprint is something I am striving to make my daily routine!

    Fast Fashion vs Sustainable Fashion! I am not really one to shop, but so many clothes are thrown away rather than re-used. We can do better!
  • 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?

    Through my words. I can also re-use and recycle items in my household and add them to my wardrobe. Become my own designer!
