    How does the act of picking up litter connect you more to your community?

    It at least makes me feel like I am not just turning a blind eye. Living in a city is especially hard, everywhere you look there is plastic.  I make an effort to pick up at least 10-20 pieces a day.  I like to focus on storm drains, and on any  trash that is a closed loop, as these can create entanglement risks for a range of wildlife.

    How does working with others to clean up your community make you feel?

    It is great because it is a way to spread education and make a tangible impact, but also have a good time outside doing a somewhat social activity.  It also makes me feel that if people see myself and others making an effort, they will think about their impacts and what they can do.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Make Your Own
    How do you feel about being more involved in the food preparation process? Joyful, overwhelmed, engaged, empowered? What are the benefits of choosing to process or produce your own food instead of buying it pre-processed?

    I never buy yogurt because it always comes in plastic.  This week I learned how to make it at home.  I also started going to a community produce store that only has unpackaged produce.   Cooking with fresh ingredients is so much more enjoyable than cooking with the overly packaged and picked over stuff that large supermarkets sells.
