  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Go by Bike
    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    Biked to work this morning - 9km one way. I will do another 9 when I get back home in the evening. 
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Mug
    Maybe you've heard how good it is to switch from a single use coffee cup to a reuseable one but it's just hard to make the switch. Think about what stands in your way of making this a habit. By identifying the challenges, you can begin to work through them to have better success in taking this action. Knowing the difference you are making, how does it make you feel?

  • Reflection Question
    Water Install a Toilet Tank Bank
    Name some of the human activities impacting the health of water systems, both locally (your watershed) and globally (freshwater and oceans). What can you do to improve the health of water systems?

    Saving 1/2 liter of water every time I let empty the toilet tank :)
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    I am planning on drinking cocktails this Friday night and I plan to say no to all straws! Hopefully after a critical mass of people saying this, bar owners will start using straws of more sustainable materials and limit their use in general. 
  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Limit Social Media
    Social media is a great way to keep us connected with loved ones, makes us laugh, and helps us to learn new things. It can also take more time than we realize or intend to give. After doing this action for a few days now, how do you feel? What do you notice?

    I try to limit the use of social media. Today, uninstalled the facebook app from my phone, as example.
