    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    Being vegan makes my body feel less heavy and bloated as well as improving my mood. I also love drinking green juices because they are healthy and they taste great!
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Car Share
    Take a moment to think of places you frequent often (school, work, grocery store, natural areas). Could you choose one or two days a week to schedule driving with a friend, neighbor or co-worker to these places?

    I recently started getting rides from my coworkers after work. It is more convenient as well!
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Reduce Single-Use Disposables
    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What did you substitute or could be substituted instead?

    I like using my hydroflask every day to carry around my water, rather than buying single-use plastic bottles.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Use Public Transit
    The US spends roughly 20% of its federal budget on defense. In contrast, 2% goes to education, 20% goes to social security and just 3% goes to transportation infrastructure. Do these numbers surprise you at all? Why or why not? How would you adjust them if you could?

    These numbers don't really surprise me because they are expected. We can visibly see the difference between what goes into our military vs public transit. I don't think it is fair to compare them though; they are two different departments
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Go For A Daily Walk Outside
    Fresh air and movement are good for our entire being and can help us think more clearly and creatively. How does taking a walk each day affect yourself and/or your work?

    I love to take walks because it helps me disconnect from all the stressful things going on in my life and it is also a nice opportunity to practice mindfulness.
  • 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?

    I think this is because the meat is more accessible to them so they don't even have to see where it comes from.

    I think i've really grown over the course of the challenge I learned that even just taking small breaks away from technology benefits not only the planet but myself.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Join a Local CSA
    Dependable fresh food, better prices (cutting out carbon-heavy supply chain and grocery stores), supporting local farmers and building resilient communities are just a few benefits of local food systems. Which of these benefits (or others not listed here) inspires you the most?

    alexia garcia 12/06/2022 3:05 PM
    cutting carbon! I never knew what a CSA was before this challenge and i'm so glad i've gotten to try more locally grown and made foods and products and I never knew it was so cheap!
  • Reflection Question
    Community Engage In Active Listening
    What was it like to actively listen to someone? How did both people and the conversation(s) benefit from active listening?

    Ive practiced this skill on my roommate and I feel like we've gotten so much closer since i've started doing this. We both really value one another's opinions and point of view and i'm so thankful i've gotten to experience this type of communication
