    Changing lightbulbs is an excellent first step toward energy efficiency! In what other ways can you exercise your civic duty to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions?

    I believe most of our local energy is hydro- and the creation of local dams has had significant impact on local cultures and salmon.
  • Reflection Question
    Health More Fruits and Veggies
    What do you think contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other places, and what does this say about North American values and ways of living? How can we start shifting from a meat-focused food culture to a more plant-based one?

    Eating meat was a signifier of wealth that Americans have taken to extreme. I think people could try to understand how a plant-based diet will lead to better health and well-being.
