    People of color are the most effected by environmental irresponsibility in my community and generally in every community. They are prioritized less, do not have clean water, do not have access to healthy food, do not have clean community spaces and are more apt to get sick.

    Less than 3 more cents per kilowatt hour to choose solar and wind clean energy than traditional energy using Clean Choice and keeping our  ComEd account. So easy to switch and not much of an increase for a good cause!

    This has been an interesting journey. Although I don’t go online consistently to check in, the choices always seem to be on my mind 
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Go Paperless
    Reducing your paper mail can be such a freeing action to take -- by reducing what is coming in, you can reduce what is going into the recycling bin too. How does it make you feel? What is the next step you will take to reduce your waste?

    It’s so easy to go on the website of anyone who sends you mail and to click “go paperless”.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    Yet another meeting I did by phone/computer, which I even like way better than having to drive somewhere.

    Instead of unerring everywhere, I can walk or jog when my destination is close enough, which improves air quality as well as my own personal health

    I learned about “environmental racism” where the pollutants and toxic wastes are typically held in low income communities like in the southeast parts of Chicago

    Health Avoid refined sugar
    Before you started this challenge, did you think you were 'addicted' to sugar? How do you feel now?

    Sugar is pretty much poison, so I just try to keep that in mind with my daily choices
