    Session 1 Reflection Questions:
    1. Sustainability is an all encompassing movement that requires people to use the planet respectfully and responsibly to make progress (or profit). 
    2. Many believe that sustainability is just about natural resource consumption. However, it's truly about every aspect of our lives. This framing helps convey how "all-emcompassing" sustainability is. 
    3. + My family has always encouraged respect - for other people, for animals, for the environment - this helps promote sustainability because it helps keep me in check when I make choices for just about everything I do. 
        - Because of how heavily I rely I rely on every penny I make, some of my choices focus more on the monetary value than the intristic value of things. 
    4. 'Ethos of Sustainability' means the ethics or morality of being sustainable. It's important because sometimes our own 'ethos' contradict  'ethos of sustainability' and that is where we have to make tough decisions. 
    5. SUSTAINABILITY APPLIES TO ALL THINGS
    6. Many people would need to open their minds and focus on the bigger picture. Step outside of yourself and think about how you can do the most good for everything and everyone.
