    I just recently watched a documentary demonstrating the social challenges accompanying campus rape culture. It was called "The Hunting Ground" and it was a really good documentary that demonstrated the difficulties and overall un-sustainability of college campus' safety.

    I was able to reduce my plastic footprint by bringing my own bags to the grocery store and not utilizing plastic utensils and straws in the Johnson Center. It was much more difficult to avoid using plastic silverware than I believed it would be, as that required me to remember to bring my own silverware to campus and refuse other silverware during the day.

    I took the ecological footprint quiz earlier this week, and even though I do things to conserve natural resources my footprint was still extremely unsustainable. It is difficult to figure out just what should be changed to have an effective impact on my own sustainability practices.

    For the first CSL chapter, I asked everyone what sustainability meant to them. I found this really interesting as everyone has a different way of looking at sustainability, as it is a human-made concept. I enjoyed learning more about the backgrounds of who I talked to and how that impacted their own definition of the term.
