    Tried a new way to meal prep today with no packaging waste at all

    I was surprised by how large my transportation footprint was since I do not own a car and only carpool if I am riding in one. Since I have taken more trips than usual in the past year, however, the carbon emissions from one flight outweighed any of my small victories by walking and biking to work or class. I need to cut down on how often I am...

    By switching from hot to cold water, I am able to reduce my carbon footprint. I plan to further reduce it by washing clothes by hand when I can to avoid the electricity use of a washing machine.  These choices save me money that I plan to use to help me invest in more technologies that will retrofit my apartment to be more energy efficient.

    Economics are a major player in this cultural trend. The government currently supports a lot of loopholes that make it easy for meat producers to sell meat at cheap prices, driving up demand and increasing the amount that animal products contribute to the total global carbon footprint. Since meat is available at lower prices than in other...

    It is sad to think about how much perfectly good food goes to waste simply because supermarkets think it does not look "good enough" for the consumer to buy or because consumers that buy food let it go to waste in the back of their fridge. This money could be more appropriately used to fund programs that increase people's access to...

    I would love to enjoy tomatoes all year long, so today I spent time learning about how to make batches of tomato sauce ahead of time and how to keep it frozen. Another thing I explored was drying my own tomatoes and fruit to extend the season of fruits and my access to them. I hope to try out both of these techniques soon.

    Today I built raised flower beds with some roommates for our outdoor garden on campus and we planted several different herbs. We built them out of recycled wooden pallets that the produce from the dining hall is delivered to us in. Now we will have fresh produce to add to our meals without having to buy it from the store or use processed...
