    Yesterday I really graved for a cold coffee drink from Starbucks but resisted because I did not want the plastic cup. I often take a can of starbucks coffee which I can recycle afterwards.

    How can you prevent yourself from accumulating more things in the future?

    I already stopped buying and collecting unnecessary items. Now I need to find the time to get rid of items that I don't need by taking to goodwill or selling.
  • 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?

    Meat seems to be a status symbol. Eating meat is destructive  to waterways, forests and environment in general. Natural landscaping is cleared for cattle raising, taking space from wildlife and forests. Factory farming is polluting waters and  is a cruel business, torturing and mistreating sentient animals. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    Many people say that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” How would you respond to that statement?

    Then there's too many people to feed. Overpopulation is a huge issue but sensitive topic to many.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Car Share
    Take a moment to think of places you frequent often (work, grocery store, school, natural areas). Could you choose one or two days a week to schedule driving with a friend, neighbor or co-worker to these places?

    No, I live outside the city and have no public transport or anybody I know working in the same direction. I have scheduled my work so I can commute with my husband, rather than driving two cars.
