    I learned many new concepts relating to energy and other factors impacting the environment and I was happy to hear that there are many people and organizations around the world who care about our planet. 
    I really wish that such activities lead to  people acknowledgement and thus less  environmenal losses🙏🌿 
    Thank you for arranging this challenge.

    Goodbye Eco Challenge!  I learned many new concepts through this challenge and I surly will add the new learnt tips to my everyday tasks and life style. I wish at least some of these tasks could be done by most people. Your idea is great and very well designed and implemented. 
    Wishing you good luck and success in distributing these manners🌷🌱🌷🌱
    Thank you🙏🙏

  • Reflection Question
    Health Learn About Local Environmental Justice Concerns
    Who is most affected by environmental degration and/or environmental irresponsiblity in your community? How are they affected?

    Nastaran Modarres 10/23/2018 4:51 AM
    The farmers and people whose profession directly depends on water, soil, climate. People who live near infected areas will experience floods or dusts, drought, storms,...Also the people living in suburban areas which are not built safely and are more vulnarable. Children, elder and people with disease are also more affected.

    What are some of the things that water provides for you?

    Nastaran Modarres 10/23/2018 2:43 AM
    Water provides everything for us, directly or indirectly. Even in car industry or leather or whatever we can think of. 

  • Reflection Question
    Waste Find Local Recycling Depots
    Our ability to recycle certain things ebbs and flows based upon many factors. Luckily there are places that accept uncommon things to recycle or dispose of in a less harmful way. What did you find when looking for places to recycle items that can't be recycled in your curbside bin?

    Nastaran Modarres 10/22/2018 10:05 PM
    Tehran has a big distributed recycling system with many branches in different parts of the city which collect the material from peopi  exchange for little money. These are collected and transfered to the center and do the separation, proccessing,..After separation ,a group will turn into compost, other group is used to produce electricity and some other things. Some of the dry uncommon things are sold to other recycling industries.

    Nastaran Modarres 10/21/2018 8:14 AM
    In fact , my energy footprint was as low as I had expected, as our family always care about it. What was so interesting for me was the website I used : http://engage.energysavvy.com , which was desgned profesionaly and included important details which I never thought of. The report was accurate and  very useful , computing heating, cooling, usage, aand  was emaled for furthur study I have no hope such  clever tool eever   be regarded in my contry😏

      Sorry for my mistakes in spelling, this editor behaves strangely while referring to previous lines and mixes up the typings😥

  • Nastaran Modarres 10/19/2018 10:44 PM
    This picture refers to the energy footprint in different countries. However I think that Iran's usage of energy is much higher than this . Unfortunately our people use too much energy😣
