    in case we ever need this:
    Transportation
    value = convenience
    connected, affordable local transport
    walkable city
    tax breaks for electric and solar cars, owning fewer cars
    work gives carpooling option
    bike paths
    Uber/Lyft - hybrid/electric = prioritized for rates and rides
    oil/gas tax

    Food
    value = community
    popularize composting
    popularize ugly fruit
    community gardens and kitchens
    adjustments to buffet-style dining
    making food an experience: longer lunch breaks, encourage connections over food
    local, organic sourcing
    reducing meat options
    trend of homegrown gardens 
    encourage smaller portions

    Consumption
    value = reuse/preservation
    cost-efficient reusable items
    sales tax
    more secondhand options and rebates
    tax higher on single-use options (ex: fast fashion)
    create culture of giving (neighborhood exchanges)

    Solutions to overpopulation and overconsumption
    Overpopulation: strategy - incentivize and educate on population reduction (incentives like tax breaks for fewer children, mandatory sex ed and family planning, public health care that gives access to birth control and family information
    Overconsumption: strategy - economic incentives for secondhand buys and reduced shopping (income tax switched to sales tax, resale and secondhand buys get breaks/discounts, cost-efficient reusable items)
