    My challenge is going great. I get to enjoy many more things like hanging outside and it's nice and refreshing.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Enjoy the Sunrise/Sunset
    Father Thomas Berry says, "...our primary purpose is celebration. Celebration of the dawn and the sunset and the different seasons of the year is a religious ritual, a way in which humans can establish their integral relationship with the universe, with the planet Earth." Respond to Berry's assertion.

    I agree with what Father Thomas Berry because once in a while, we need to enjoy the sunset and sunrise to just feel in peace and relaxed.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reuseable one with you? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to establish this a successful habit?

    If I found myself in needing a bag for items and don't have a reuseable bag with me, I'd just put all the groceries in the cart and just grab my reuseable bag in the car and put the groceries inside.
  • Reflection Question
    Energy Turn it off
    How is electricity generated where you live? How does it impact the environment, animals, and humans?

    It impacts the environment, animals, and humans by decreasing global warming since we used a lot of fossil fuel for electricity.

      True...In California about 50% of our electricity is generated from natural gas, which is a fossil fuel and creates pollution.
