  • Reflection Question
    Waste Research Local Waste Sites
    In what neighborhoods or areas of your region are landfills or other waste sites located? Which communities are most affected by these locations?

    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo's avatar
    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo 10/28/2020 11:26 PM
    Not far from my neighborhood theres a big terrain of wasteland that has been unoccupied for years. This affects the community since the area can be turned into a homeless zone in which homeless people can go to and live peacefully.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Learn About & Practice Sustainable Fashion
    How can you express your personality, creativity, and values in ways that don't require fast fashion or buying more clothes and accessories?

    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo's avatar
    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo 10/28/2020 11:23 PM
    You can express these things by creating a unique  accessory that you can wear. This will develop your skills and make you feel happier.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Find Local Recycling Depots
    Our ability to recycle certain things ebbs and flows based upon many factors, including market demand for recyclables. Luckily there are places that accept uncommon things to recycle or dispose of in a less harmful way. What did you find when looking for places to recycle items that can't be recycled in your curbside bin?

    I found an area were they recycle bikes. I thought it was weird but if you think about it's not that odd since in recycling those bikes newer bikes could me made in which are donated towards people. 
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Research and Consider Switching to a Hybrid or Electric Vehicle
    Reducing (or eliminating) exhaust emissions and improving public health are two benefits of green vehicles. What other motivators inspire you to consider switching to a more fuel-efficient vehicle?

    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo's avatar
    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo 10/28/2020 11:16 PM
    Another motivator that will inspire me in switching is myself. In doing this switch I will have more respect towards myself in keeping our planet safer.

  • Reflection Question
    Nature Learn About the Impact of Old Refrigerants
    Why are old refrigerant gases so harmful to our environment?

    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo's avatar
    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo 10/28/2020 11:12 PM
    Old refrigerant gases are harmful to our environment since they damage the ozone layers. This is bad since the ozone layers help us from the sun's radiation but if they are damaged then radiation from the sun will affect us.

    How can spending more time outdoors enhance your sense of place -- your deep knowledge of and appreciation for your surroundings?

    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo's avatar
    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo 10/28/2020 11:09 PM
    Spending more time outdoors makes me understand that we should admire our planet more by keeping it clean. By keeping our planet clean there will be less problems in the environment and people will be more healthier.
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Justice for the Whole Community Watch a Documentary about Racial Injustice
    What did you learn about racial injustice in the documentary(ies) you watched? How does what you learned connect to your understanding of sustainability?

    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo's avatar
    Jose Sauceda-Cornejo 10/28/2020 11:05 PM
    What I learned is that racial injustice is the act in which a racial action is taken among a certain group of people. (This action is usually in the form of violence or slurs) What I learn connects to my understanding of sustainability since it helps me understand how people feel towards situations like these.
