  • Reflection Question
    Waste Recycle Everything I Can
    What have you learned about what is accepted by local haulers for recycling, what you can drop off or ship to certain places, and what is not recyclable in your area? What is the most difficult part of recycling for you?

    Sonia Solano 10/15/2019 3:19 PM
    There's no local haulers that accept glass to recycle.
  • Reflection Question

    How can you advocate for transportation systems which minimize environmental impact while also meeting human needs?

    We can read about the theme and then share knowledge with  leaders that can take decisions selecting efficient vehicles.
