  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our planet and other people?

    Emme Fridge 1/23/2019 2:08 PM
    Americans seem to have the mentality that if we've worked hard enough we can earn anything we want. This american dream makes us believe we've earned everything and are responsible for nothing. We feel untouchable. We need to start understanding that all of our actions have an affect on others, maybe we would stop making our choices based on our desires and start making them on others needs.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Walk Instead
    Half of all trips made in the US are three miles or less; 72% of them are driven. Do you feel that this fact applies to you? If so, how might you incorporate more muscle-powered transportation in your daily life?

    Yes this fact applies to me. I live a mile from school and still choose to drive sometimes. It feels silly to waste money and fuel when it is so simple for me to walk, bike, or catch a ride. I want to continue to try and use muscle-power to get myself to these short distances.
