    Journal #4 Through the “water” challenges provided by EcoChallenge, I have learned that conserving water and being mindful of how much I use is the most difficult to accomplish, in comparison to the other topics. In terms of the “energy” category, I feel that a lot of my life has been using energy, in places that don’t necessarily need it. I...

    Journal 4 I’ve learned that I take really long showers. This is definitely an area that I can improve in. While I did not select that as my eco-challenge, I traditionally don’t use straws so I didn’t really need to adjust my life in terms of the challenge I selected. I also end up taking several showers a day. Usually, one in the morning...

    Journal #4: What I have learned about myself throughout the daily challenges is that I genuinely am a lazy person especially when it comes to going on the daily walks or choosing organic ingredients when eating meals since the fries always look good or the burritos sound good but choosing scratch-made meals and also eating the organic fruit...

    Journal 3 Through the water, health, food, and energy categories, I learned a lot about how I live my life. I found myself being reminded about the effects of my actions way more than before. Especially in the food category, I found myself thinking a lot about what I was consuming and the health impacts it can have. I chose the challenge to...

    1) I have better understood my tendencies and values through the last four eco-challenge categories. Under the water category, I chose a customized challenge of showering for less than 10 minutes per day. From an environmental standpoint, 10 minutes is still quite a long time to have water running for one person. In class, we talked about how...
  • February 18 at 8:00 PM
    Journal 4: 1.One thing I learned about myself throughout the last two weeks of the eco-challenge is that when my focus is not on water and energy conservation specifically, my negative environmental impact is much larger than it should be. I’ve taken shorter showers and kept my thermostat 2 degrees lower than what it was originally set at...

    1. Through the daily challenges, I have learned a lot about myself. For instance, I didn’t think I used a lot of plastic water bottles until recently. I use my reusable one during the week, then wash it on Friday and don’t pick it up again until Monday. I didn’t notice how many plastic water bottles I was wasting by using them on the weekend. I...

    1. The first thing that I learned about myself is that I really don’t need meat. I’ve never really loved meat anyway—I enjoy it in things like casseroles or pastas, but prefer not to just eat it on its own. The substitute meat I used this week was delicious– I actually liked it better than normal ground beef. Doing the challenge, I also...

    1) My water challenge is to use reusable straws more and stop using any single use straws (paper or plastic). While previously to this challenge I liked to think that I already cut down on the single-use things plastics and packaging already, I definitely have taken note of how many single-use things I rely on everyday. I would say this...
  • February 18 at 11:24 AM
    I think I chose what I assumed to be simple options in all four of those categories but as much as that may be so, it’s a lot harder to adhere to them than I originally thought. A lot of conscious effort has gone into keeping up with them which I’m proud of despite the challenges. My daily water challenge is to only flush the toilet when...
