    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?

    We eat more meat because of our country's wealth and traditions.  We continue to do this without consideration of what this does to the environment partly because of inertia and special interests that deny climate change.  I'm sure more could be said.

    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?

    When I shop for new items for my closet or home I should start by looking at the consignment or charity shops.  You can find wonderful and useful items.

    Good job on choosing recycled paper! How can you take your action a step further?

    It's always good to use recycled paper.  But I should also use less paper, print less.

      No kidding. I still feel dependent on paper. It doesn't feel real to me, unless I can file it. Though, ironically, I love shredded paper for composting...
