    Phew, the EcoChallenge was a lot of work but super rewarding!  Good job, all!
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Advocate for Greener Vehicles
    Reducing (or eliminating) exhaust emissions and improving public health are two benefits of green vehicles. What other motivators inspire you to consider switching to a more fuel-efficient vehicle?

    Giuseppe Collia 10/15/2018 8:50 AM
    I don't have a vehicle which is a big start, but when I need to go place, I try to walk first, then bike, then public transit, then finally bum a ride off others.  I do enjoy riding my bike and the health benefits that come with that exercise!

  • Giuseppe Collia 10/15/2018 7:24 AM
    Today is actually the last day!  Let's go!
  • Reflection Question
    Health Learn About Local Environmental Justice Concerns
    Who is most affected by environmental degration and/or environmental irresponsiblity in your community? How are they affected?

    Giuseppe Collia 10/14/2018 5:29 PM
    The map didn't seem to work but I would be most likely to expect that it were people of low-income backgrounds or POC because that is how it mostly works on a national level.  Dickinson is trying to work with communities to combat this and I believe that we are taking steps to ensure that we meet the goals of the people that are affected, not just those of our classes or those that we perceive without living it.

    Michael Pollan states that "it is better to pay the grocer (our edit: or the farmer!) than the doctor." What are your thoughts on this?

    Giuseppe Collia 10/14/2018 1:33 PM
    If we feed ourselves correctly, we'll be less likely to have problems in the long run!  It is better to be healthy than to have the best health insurance in the world.  I, however, am neither of these things XD

    last day (or second to last)?! Make it count!

    How does environmental quality influence your sense of community?

    Giuseppe Collia 10/10/2018 4:28 PM
    If we have a safe, enjoyable environment, people will spend time in it together, thus building community.
