    It was surprisingly difficult but it made me pick more sustainable options and made me realize where I struggled...not to mention what my worst offenders were for single use plastics. This has made me examine my habits more.

    Spending time outdoors and tracking my purchases were challenges that I did not have much difficulty completing. It was a bit hard motivating myself to get outside when it was raining all day. I had not anticipated having such a difficult time practicing mindfulness and work life balance. I think that is eye-opener and something to be improved upon!

    Eating meatless and vegan meals was somewhat hard for me because I tend to eat meat quite a bit. I had a couple of plant based vegan Cesar salads, that even had plant based cheese. It was very interesting to try and I got kind of a sense of what plant based things tasted like. It was also cool to see how much that helps the planet.

    What plastic or single-use items do you regularly use? What did you substitute or could be substituted?

    Plastic water bottles. We would use them and take them to the store in exchange for food money. As a substitute i bought a reusable flask that i fill up regularly with water instead of buying cases of single use plastic water bottles.
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Make Zero-Waste Meals
    How did you incorporate using an entire vegetable (skins, peels, tops, and stalks) during one of your meal preps? What's something new you're going to try that is a zero-waste meal practice?

    So many potatoes were involved in my breakfast meal. Since i peeled the potatoes, I had an abundance of skins, as part as my zero-waste practice, I used these skins as part of fertilizer, since they're fully biodegradable

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

    With art you can practice sustainability, since art can be made out of essentially anything, as well as bring attention to the importance of sustainability

    Water-less products! I’m very excited about starting to include waterless products into my home and reducing my water footprint.

    Education & Livelihood Engage In Active Listening
    What was it like to actively listen to someone? How did both people and the conversation benefit from active listening?

    It taught me a little more patience. I heard the whole story before reacting and we ended up having a short, efficient conversation.
