    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?

    Increased access and use has made me less intimidated by public transit systems in places I visit
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    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?

    Our separation from our food system allows us to not think about the repercussions of eating meat and the suffering it causes
  • 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?
