    What have you noticed about your purchases? Where are you inclined to make shifts, if any?

    I have noticed that I spend too much money on eating out. I need to bring my lunch more often as that will help with spending and carbon footprint. I need to focus on ways to reduce spending. 
  • Reflection Question

    Who is most affected by environmental degradation and/or environmental irresponsiblity in your community? How are they affected?

    Environmental racism is the choices and policies that result in the disproportionate impact of environmental hazards on people of color. One sign I saw when researching really stuck with me "Water is a Human Right". 
  • Reflection Question

    Fixing leaky faucets is one of the tasks that we can easily put off until later. Good job on completing this action! How will you use the momentum from completing this action to increase your water efficiency in other ways?

    One of the best ways you can positively impact our natural environment is to contribute to ongoing scientific studies through citizen/community science.

    Impact investing is an investment strategy that aims to generate specific beneficial social or environmental effects in addition to financial gains. Impact investments may take the form of numerous asset classes and may result in many specific outcomes. The point of impact investing is to use money and investment capital for positive social results.

    Voting is one of the easiest ways you can voice your opinion in a democracy. It gives you a chance to choose your own leaders and make them accountable for your development. Voting should be cherished, not discarded. 
  • Reflection Question

    What did you learn about racial injustice in the documentary(ies) you watched? How does what you learned connect to your understanding of sustainability?

    Discrimination prevents equal treat, therefore, it hurts the society. Discrimination has existed for a long time and it needs to be ended so that we could live together in peace with equality. Racial injustice hurts all of us!
