    I bought a YETI and started to use it as a reusable bottle to stop purchasing 24 water packs every weekend. I have saved more than four disposable plastic bottles each day and will eventually stop using plastic for drinking water. Also, my roommate and I have started car-pooling to campus to reduce gas emissions and to cut down the number of vehicles on the road. I have also bought less food by purchasing only the food required to sustain myself for the week. It has cut the amount of money spent on food by half and reduced food waste at the same time.

    Solution to overpopulation and overconsumption:

    - Overpopulation:
    We want to focus on the highest population growth in the world to address this issue. The highest population growth occurs in under-developed countries, especially Africa. We think that we should empower women in underdeveloped countries in family planning and support to make decisions about the size of their families. 

    - Per Capita consumption: 
    Social media influencers have a significant influence over the young people of today on media platforms like Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, etc. Our group believes that it would be useful to do giveaways and other incentives for sustainable actions, attending events, collecting trash, and incorporating minimalistic lifestyles for the followers of these influencers.
