    Our meat intact is minimal. We do eat it, but try to limit it.  We eat a lot of fruits and veggies.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Composting
    Producing food that goes uneaten squanders many resources—seeds, water, energy, land, fertilizer, hours of labor, financial capital. Which of these kinds of waste most motivates you to change your behavior regarding food waste? Why?

    All of it- I hate wasting food, but we try to compost as much as possible to try to offset what we can.

    Never heard of silvopasture but it's a fantastic natural way to feed animals on a farm and a great savings to farmers.  Beautiful landscapes too.

    I hope we can make it easier and easier for everybody to take public transportation - the more people get around in higher capacity vehicles, the less traffic there'll be.

    In your opinion, what contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other countries? What does this say about North American values and ways of living?

    Americans are pretty unhealthy and wasteful.  It feels good to eat less meat.
  • Reflection Question
    Land Use Research Peatlands
    Much of Indonesia's peatlands have been drained so they could be replaced with palm oil or pulp and paper plantations. How can you make choices that help to protect peatlands, even if you live far away from one?

    I've just learned what a bog is, and it's pretty important to retain these significant resources as much as possible.

    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    We recycle everything we can at home - paper, plastic, containers, etc.
