    I have been volunteering with the Nonprofit Plant With Purpose, an environmentally and humanitarian focused organization. I will be volunteering for four more Christmas markets. I like volunteering as I get to speak to many people about Plant with Purposes mission.

      A great organization that deals right at the intersection of environmental justice and economic well being.

    I have been good at eating less meat however being at home for thanksgiving I have eaten more meat. I have also realized how wasteful the holidays are in reguards to gifts, wrapping paper and excess food

    I went to a vegan restaurant again last night with some friends interested in going vegan and we all had a fun time enjoying good vegan food

    Yesterday, my friends and I drove to Julian. It was so nice to spend time with friends, support local pies businesses and be in a mountain town. Although the gas and footprint is large, We managed to carpool a full car of 5 for maximum fun!
  • Jordan Lee 11/13/2017 3:21 PM
    Emma and I carpooled to class today which is so simple yet effective. We saved gas, reduced our carbon footprint and connected about our weekend.

      Ya Jordan!! teamwork makes the dreamwork
  • Jordan Lee 11/09/2017 4:21 PM
    In order to incorporate simplicity into my daily life I have just deleted snapchat and Instagram because I have found myself spending too much time wasted on social media. I'm sure I will redownload them but for now it feels good to focus on other areas of my life such as exercising.
  • Jordan Lee 11/03/2017 4:29 PM
    I have invested in a plastic straw and mason jar where I will use for whenever I am ordering a drink in a place that would serve me in a plastic cup. Now I am looking to buy reusable produce bags for fruit shopping.

    • Erla Teli 11/05/2017 8:24 PM
      I've been looking into getting a reusable straw. Where did you get yours from?
  • Jordan Lee 10/20/2017 12:48 PM
    Something I am usually really good at is only using my own mug or water bottle rather than disposable. However, I went to Better Buzz yesterday and was bummed after I realized my drink came in a plastic cup and that I didnt have a reusable container so I felt guilty for my plastic cup.

    • Harry Watkins 10/22/2017 10:20 PM
      Will they sell you coffee in a mug? Starbucks will do that.

    Yesterday a friend and I went to a local vegan restaurant called Plant Power in Ocean Beach. It is a unique vegan restaurant as it "fast food" vegan. I had a burger and a "milkshake" and a "burger" which were both delicious and satisfying. It is really not that hard to switch to certain vegan meals and there are vegan-friendly options available  when you do want to indulge in an "unhealthy meal"

    • Sabrinna Alonso 10/17/2017 9:54 AM
      I LOVE PLANT POWER! I agree it is nice to have a "cheat" meal that is still healthy. My go to  there is the chill cheese fries, so good!

    • Allegra DeSanto 10/16/2017 5:02 PM
      YES! I love plant power. It's really cool to have "healthy fast food" available and still get our unhealthy fix! I love the "chicken" sandwich!
