  • Reflection Question
    Simplicity Less Screen Time
    What did you notice in implementing this challenge? Was it hard to choose other activities over screen time? How did you decide to spend your time?

    Casey Altman 4/10/2020 10:10 PM
    It was a little hard at first, but now i value my time off screens more i do puzzles and read. 
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    Casey Altman 4/10/2020 10:09 PM
    Yes. A culture that spends all of its time indoors beings to not value nature and is more likely to harm nature without caring.
  • Reflection Question
    Health Exercise Daily
    How can you incorporate other personal values (like quality time with friends or spending time in nature) into your exercise routine?

    Casey Altman 4/10/2020 10:08 PM
    I try to only exercise outdoors so that i spend more time in nature, and find group exercise to help keep each other accountable and become closer. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our planet and other people?

    Casey Altman 4/10/2020 10:07 PM
    Because meat is expensive so it is easier to access in richer countries. The meat industry is harmful to our planet because of how much carbon it produces, feeding livestock also takes food away from people.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    It is often said that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” What is your response to that statement?

    Casey Altman 4/09/2020 9:36 AM
    I don't think that is true at all, one main thing that would have to change if the world is to eat all or more organic food, is people have to  become less concerned with the appearance of their produce. So much produce is wasted just because people don't like to buy ugly looking produce but its perfectly good food. 
  • Reflection Question
    Water Conserve Toilet Water
    What would a sustainable water future in your region look like? What needs to change?

    Casey Altman 4/09/2020 9:34 AM
    Our area needs to start cutting back on grass yards and street cleanings as both of these waste water with little reason. 
  • Reflection Question
    Health Reduce refined sugar
    Before you started this challenge, did you think you were 'addicted' to sugar? How do you feel now?

    Casey Altman 4/09/2020 9:33 AM
    I don't think I was addicted to sugar but I do feel better now that I have worked on cutting down on my refined sugar intake. I think it makes me feel more naturally energetic and healthier
  • Reflection Question
    Health More Fruits and Veggies
    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    Casey Altman 4/09/2020 9:31 AM
    Makes me feel healthier and have more energy. Feel the food I am eating was not that damaging to the planet to create. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Try a New Way to Prep
    Canning and pickling food is a great way to have delicious summer fruits and vegetables all year round. Just make sure to follow the canning and pickling guidelines from the USDA. What are some foods that you would like to preserve and enjoy later in the year?

    Casey Altman 4/07/2020 1:17 PM
    I want to make pickles and also pickle green beans
