    Prior to the challenge, I was serious about recycling and composting.  Now I am now much more focused on using resources more efficiently and producing less waste from the start.  Ms. Collins, thank you for bringing this challenge to the Rhinebeck community!

    Women  even though they often produce more food than men are allocated fewer resources, land, and rights as men which can hurt their productivity. Support women farmers and the world will have more food to feed the starving.

    Higher income areas and countries use more transportation. This is because people can afford cars and increased transportation to other places is a part of economic growth. We don't realize how privileged we are in Rhinebeck where we each drive our own cars to school each day. I once had a conversation with a girl from Ghana who found it crazy that most Juniors and seniors drive their own/a family car to school because there almost no one has cars; only the rich.
