    I am determined to leave a better world for our children, and to ensure we become better stewards of our planet and fellow creatures (plants and animals).

    Pretty easy.  When we know better, we do better.
  • Reflection Question

    As you learn more about the scope and seriousness of the environmental challenges we face, what impact does that have on your thinking and actions? What are the parts that feel overwhelming? What parts help you feel hopeful?

    It definitely makes more conscious of consumption choices and determined to make better choices.  No parts feel overwhelming, there is so much we can do together en masse that will change things for the better...the key is education and execution!

    Walking daily has made me more aware of the small changes evident in nature as spring arrives.

    I walk around my neighborhood or get on a road bike and cycle on the streets for about 45 minutes. I notice the foliage on the sides of the streets. I would make more bike lanes and make them wider, if possible. Some people don't slow down much when passing cyclists.

  • Reflection Question
    Land Sinks Research Peatlands
    Much of Indonesia's peatlands have been drained so they could be replaced with palm oil or pulp and paper plantations. How can you make choices that help to protect peatlands, even if you live far away from one?

    Sean Butler 4/30/2021 12:23 PM
    By not buying products that require products that require peatland destruction like palm oil and informing others.
  • Reflection Question
    Land Sinks Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    Sean Butler's avatar
    Sean Butler 4/30/2021 12:14 PM
    No, I hadn't.  I think the biggest advantage of the silvopasture is the effect it has on the land and thereby climate change.

    I have learned a lot about becoming a lot more eco friendly and have changed some of my daily habits to help heal the earth.
