    What does your vision of a sustainable community look like? What would need to be changed in order for such vision to become reality?

    my city does not provide mandatory recycling as some cities.  I would like to see a much more strict rules around recycling and enforce fee(s) if not followed.

    Going better than expected.  This helps me stay motivated, committed and on track of what I need to do on a daily basis.

    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?

    Reduces time to check the mail and unnecessary waste of throwing papers away when it can just be viewed electronically

    What have you noticed on your daily walks? What have you enjoyed? What infrastructure changes could make your walks more enjoyable or possible?

    Instead of going for regular walks. I killed two birds with one stone by going to the mall and use long walks around the mall as a way of excercising

    This is an opportunity to do good to our earth and good for myself
  • Reflection Question
    Food Smaller Portions
    Fun fact: Your brain and stomach register feelings of fullness after about 20 minutes of eating. While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come out of eating smaller portions?

    I am able to stick with my diet of not overeating when I don't need to. 
  • Reflection Question
    Transport Use Public Transit
    How has your access to various kinds of transporation throughout your life influenced your current attitudes about transportation and your transportation behavior?

    Yes - it's been much easier to navigate from one location to another without worrying about putting much mileage to my car.  It also gives me time to relax before heading to work and home.
