  • Reflection Question
    Energy Turn it off
    How is electricity generated where you live? How does it impact the environment, animals, and humans?

    Electricity is generated by power plants where I live. It affects the environment as well as animals and humans by polluting the air. 
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    I feel if you simply just tell others that this is an option, they can make the switch easily. They will just have to remember it while in a rush; say they need a paper printed out as soon as possible, all they have to do is one little quick to change it. It definitely can be encouraged company-wide.

    I make yearly checkups at the doctor as well as yearly dental checks! I also recently started watching what I eat very closely. Actually, last night I bought the water bottle that makes sure you drink the right amount of water each day, and it has goals on the side to make you keep going!

    This morning was definitely different than all of the others this week! It was very humid and muggy today compared to the cool, crisp breezes in the past few days. I never knew how much water was really wasted for the 2 minutes brushing your teeth- WOW!

  • Reflection Question
    Health More Fruits and Veggies
    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    Eating more fruits affects me and others by maintaining healthy body weight and having a positive mindset daily. For example, when I wake up and either eat fruit or drink a fruit smoothie, I feel refreshed and ready to start my day.  
  • 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?

    Lexi Lehman 9/08/2021 2:29 PM
    I feel people in richer countries eat more meat because it is easier for them to just go to the store and buy it. On the other hand, if you look at the "poorer" countries, they have to make extra efforts such as killing an animal for meat, walking to the store where meat is sold since they do not have a car, etc. Eating more meat lessens the number of animals on the planet. Just like humans, animals reproduce in order to help our planet; for example, cows eat the grass which feeds them and makes the farmer have one less job to do!

    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Maybe my friends and I can go to the gym together and while working out, we can always talk about what is going on in our lives.

    The main water source in the United States is groundwater and surface water.
