    Every single time I use delivery food services the apps have options to let you know which restaurants have a sustainable package, I try to order more from those type of restaurants and also applications and gov institutions are pushing towards that change to be done.

  • 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?

    That we can save money and at the same time not wasting food whereas other people in the world are in food need. 
  • 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 think we can consume less food and not elevate our carboon food print 
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Zero-waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for utilizing every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable, including the skins, tops, and stalks during your next meal prep?

    I think we can use some vegtables as dishes so we can avoid using plastics.
  • 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?

    This past weekend I took another step on supporting food delivery services that have eco friendly options. There are also some campaigns online to have businesses switch from non-reusable plastics to some compostable options. 
  • Reflection Question
    Industry Find a Local Climate-Friendly Supermarket
    How close is the nearest climate-friendly supermarket to your home? How could you encourage local supermarket to reduce or phase out their use of HFC refrigerants?

    There are very few options still in Mexico City but I have found some small businesses that offers good options, since they are small supermarkets they don't have HFC refrigerants. It would be nice to see supermarkets in Mexico take a better approach to this.
