    Why is it so difficult to understand the impacts our purchases and waste have on other people, animals, and places? How might your experience with this challenge impact your future consumption and choices?

    We never think about what happens to the trash we throw away or what it might hurt. It might make me buy more recyclable products.

    It was originally the idea of using a plane to make the trips, but we decided it would be best to use a car instead. I can use less carbon emitting forms of transportation like car or bus.

    My top three core values are family, honesty, and humor. I just thought about what is the most important things when it comes to being happy and healthy.

    It might make me more aware about what is outside around me and teach me more skills for outdoor life.

    Switching out your lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! In what other ways can you exercise your civic duty to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions?

    I can use less water, turn of my lights, and recycle everything appropriate.
