  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    Can organic farming feed the world? Which side of the argument do you fall on? Why?

    We'd need to shift the mindsets of people. It is not worth saving money on low quality food, but rather investing in the organic food's plantations to make it more accessible.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than in other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How do we start shifting a meat-focused food culture?

    It takes a bit of effort to become meat-free. I tried being vegan for two days, but I think I was not ready for this challenge, I guess it takes small steps to achieve this goal :)

    Get together, dinners, I try my best to call people I don't get to see frequently. Staying in touch is important.

    Your utility company is able to tell you your average energy usage. Ask them how your energy usage compares to others in your zipcode, and in your state. What other steps can you take each day to reduce your electricity usage?

    Turn off my monitor everyday, ensure light is on only when I need it.
  • Reflection Question
    Energy Turn it off
    How is electricity generated where you live? How does it impact the environment, animals, and humans?

    It is still not ideal, I'm afraid, we don't use the solar-generated energy anywhere in my neighbourhood...
