    What are other ways you could use the power of the sun to reduce your own environmental footprint?

    Anna Conley 4/09/2020 11:45 AM
    My house has solar panels now so the majority of power we use is clean, renewable energy.

    Who is most affected by environmental degration and/or environmental irresponsiblity in your community? How are they affected?

    Anna Conley 4/07/2020 10:18 AM
    Minority populations and people living below the poverty line are the most impacted by environmental degradation. Poor environmental aspects are being dumped on these communities, leaving them with the negative consequences.

    Consider how many hours of sleep you get now. How would you like to shift your sleep patterns? What are you finding works for you to be successful in this action?

    Anna Conley 4/07/2020 10:13 AM
    I've noticed that my I get the best sleep when I am on a consistent sleep schedule. I have also noticed that I sleep the best after a day where I am working hard so by nighttime, I'm ready to fall asleep and stay asleep.

    Waste Learn About & Practice Sustainable Fashion
    How can you express your personality, creativity, and values in ways that don't require fast fashion or buying more clothes and accessories?

    Anna Conley 4/05/2020 2:07 PM
    I am just as likely to find something I like from a secondhand store as I am if I'm buying it brand new. Buying secondhand not only helps save me money, but helps save the planet without inconveniencing anyone.

    Where are your nearest natural bodies of water? How might they be affected by runoff?

    Anna Conley 4/02/2020 2:34 PM
    The Potomac River in DC is such a heavily polluted body of water that people have been advised against eating the fish from it as they are contaminated with chemicals. This just shows how important it is that we consider runoff when doing anything related to chemicals, especially in gardening.

    What are the implications of access to nutritious food for a community?

    Anna Conley 3/26/2020 2:43 PM
    Access to nutritious food is incredibly important to communities and ones without it are being failed. All communities deserve access to fresh food, regardless of the wealth of the area. Lower income communities are being denied their right to have access to healthy foods and more food initiatives must be put in place for these communities.
