    Beach clean up. I really enjoyed it. Did u know cigarette butts take a very very long time to breakdown and it is a really big percentage of our ocean wastes?

    Higher standards of living are very often dependent on moving our environmental costs elsewhere. What are some specific ways the environmental impacts of your own lifestyle might be shifted elsewhere?

    Kimberly Tan's avatar
    Kimberly Tan 10/24/2022 8:42 PM
    it is hard to just live off the land. but by growing own food, could be the easiest way to shift our environmental impact. that and also making own compost fertilizer.

    Why do you donate food? How does it connect to your values?

    Kimberly Tan 10/24/2022 8:39 PM
    Food is a basic necessity. We do not donate because it is our duty but rather we need to give to those in need.
