Scott's actions


Use Muscle Power

#49 Cars

I will cut my car trip mileage by only taking necessary trips, and I will only use muscle-powered transportation for all other trips.



Keep Track of Wasted Food

#3 Reduced Food Waste

I will keep a daily log of food I throw away during the EcoChallenge, either because it went bad before I ate it, I put too much on my plate, or it was scraps from food preparation.


Participant Feed

Reflection, encouragement, and relationship building are all important aspects of getting a new habit to stick.
Share thoughts, encourage others, and reinforce positive new habits on the Feed.

To get started, share “your why.” Why did you join the challenge and choose the actions you did?

    Transport Use Muscle Power
    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience or enjoyment differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    Instead of driving to my friends houses I have been walking more often. It deffinetly is easier to walk when the weather is warm and I would rather drive places when it is late at night or cold. But I did find it less attractive to walk then drive, even though my walks aren't that far I have limited the number of places I would drive to and have been starting to walk more often.
    Food Keep Track of Wasted Food
    An average American throws out about 240 lbs of food per year. The average family of four spends $1,500 a year on food that they throw out. Where would you rather use this money?

    Instead of throwing out this food, I would rather spend this money on anything else to be honest. I would rather use this money for other expenses such as rent or bills. I would be more concise of the food we buy to try and make sure I buy the right amount to keep my family and I comfortable.
