    Restorative justice, can probably help out in a lot of different cases. I like the idea behind it and would like to see it used more often.

    Thinking creatively is a good approach, it allows you to think outside the box. Not just thinking about a short term fix to a problem.

    There's a bus stop about a block from my place, I will go pick up trash around that area.

    I talk to my family about both of those, nature and environment and how it is important to take care of both of them.

    By far the most concerning would have to be air pollution. That would be both local and global. 
  • 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?

    There is a waste site within my town, A lot of the waste that is taken there is usually transported to other locations. I don't see it having an affected on the community.
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Work From Home
    It takes the average worker in the United States 26 minutes to travel to work. One way to fix long commutes would be to make cities more affordable. An even simpler option: promote the use of telework. How have you used technology to replace in-person meetings or work this year?

    For me this wouldn't be easy to achieve. During the last year there has been a lot more zoom calls. Such as doctors appointments, work meetings, and online schooling. Keeping these options will be beneficial.
