  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Walk Instead
    Half of all trips made in the US are three miles or less; 72% of them are driven. Do you feel that this fact applies to you? If so, how might you incorporate more muscle-powered transportation in your daily life?

    Madison Clarke 11/24/2018 10:20 PM
    I do not feel this applies to me because since I do not have a car. I usually walk or run everywhere I can, but if it is long distance I will either take the bus or ask a friend to drive. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    Madison Clarke 11/19/2018 10:10 PM
    I believe we have more access to meat than in other places and it is part of our way of eating. Educating others on the risks of eating meat can help to shift our meat-focused culture. We can stop making meat more accessible in most places and replace it with other options.

    Nature Go for a Daily Walk
    How do you experience your neighborhood or city differently when walking instead of driving?

    Madison Clarke 11/19/2018 10:08 PM
    You get to be up close with nature or people in your community. When driving you don't get the chance to stop and enjoy things.
  • Reflection Question
    Health Exercise Daily
    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Adam Duran 11/14/2018 11:26 PM
    A way I can incorporate personal values in my exercise routine can be simply going on a hike. Quick group text to your homies is all it takes. Group hikes are not only very fun but you're enjoying nature and good company on top of getting some good exercise.

    Waste Lobby For Reusables
    What concerns you the most about how we are affecting the planet? Consider both local and global actions.

    Madison Clarke 11/12/2018 11:37 PM
    It concerns me the people realize they are affecting the earth, but don't do anything to help. They continue to use plastic even though it is so simple not to use it. People can easily limit their use of things to help make the world a better place.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Enjoy the Sunrise/Sunset
    Father Thomas Berry says, "...our primary purpose is celebration. Celebration of the dawn and the sunset and the different seasons of the year is a religious ritual, a way in which humans can establish their integral relationship with the universe, with the planet Earth." Respond to Berry's assertion.

    Madison Clarke 11/12/2018 11:35 PM
    I agree. Spending time admiring the sunrise and sunset is important and helps you reflect about life. It lets you appreciate beauty in nature and makes you feel better.
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Less Screen Time
    What did you notice in implementing this challenge? Was it hard to choose other activities over screen time? How did you decide to spend your time?

    Madison Clarke 11/12/2018 11:33 PM
    It wasn't hard because I enjoy going out and having fun outdoors rather than be in front of a screen all day. Instead I go to the beach or go on hikes/ walk around. I noticed that you don't need a phone to have fun and it will make you feel better without it.

    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles serve an important role in places for health and safety, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. Can you identify the barriers in making this a new habit? How can you set yourself up for success in making this a permanent change?

    Madison Clarke 11/12/2018 11:31 PM
    Stop buying plastic water bottles. Buy a Brita water filter and use that to save plastic. Always bring a reusable bottle like a hydro flask to use for water.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    Madison Clarke 10/15/2018 9:28 PM
    Reuse any plastic in the household, if not reusing it, I can recycle it. Reduce the amount of water being used by using only what is needed, not what is wanted. Repair things that break instead of buying new ones (clothes). Repurpose old material into bags, etc.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?

    Madison Clarke 10/15/2018 9:26 PM
    If I did not have a bag, I would use a cart to help bring things to the car, but since I do not have a car, I will ask my friends to help carry things with me.
