    Sometimes air travel is necessary.  Over seas or cross country trips are sometimes just not feasible with a car.  I drove on a recent trip which was only five hours and will be driving 8 hours later this month .

    In the area they accept many recyclable items which is very nice.  On our campus we have a single stream recycling but the issue is that so many things are not recyclable.  Also things that still contain food in them cannot be recycled.  This is a terrible thing and we do not instruct or educate people on how to properly recycle.

    The most concerning this is the denial.  We had an administration that for the last four years has completely denied the existence of global warming.  The administration defunded the EPA and negatively affected the environment.  We need stronger laws to stop companies from polluting here and around the world.

    Many people have an aversion to tap water.  In many places, tap water can taste rusty or have other metals that people do not want to ingest.  Using water purifiers can help to make the water taste better.  Additionally, we sell so many water bottles in stores that it becomes convenient for people to just use these.

    Many fruits and vegetables provide the same nutrients that meat can provide.  Fruits and vegetables create fewer pollutants than meat production.  If more people had greenhouses or gardens, then fewer trucks would have to ship these products.

    Along with working out for physical fitness, mental fitness is good to exercise too.  Fitting time into your day to spend time with friends or to take walks in nature areas.  Taking one hour out of your day to exercise your body and mind can greatly improve your quality of life.
