    One of my goals was to recycle everything I could which is a habit I normally do, but I found that now I pay more attention to making sure that everything I put in the recycling can be recycled. In the past I have noticed that certain materials weren't recyclable, but since it wasn't plastic or compost my roommate and I would put it into the...

    I have bought my first car within the past couple of months, but I realized that it hasn't stopped me from continuing to walk to places near my house. In a way, I prefer using it when I have to travel further distances because I enjoy the act of walking. I like it because I'm more physical and it allows me to have a different change of scenery.

    It is the small meaningful interactions I've had with people in the grocery store which includes physically helping others, but people give me recommendations of new products to try out or we bond over liking the same products. It's really nice since we are primarily isolated from others

    Here is a link to my Eco Change final presentation video. The video shown in class was corrupt so hopefully this works. DO MORE

    I've realized that I don't waste as much as I thought I did especially considering I'm primarily in the house. I think that I have adopted a better waste management system that works for both me and my roommate! Even though this is in place we still do many dishes due to the amount of food we consume.

    I've had brief interacts when I've gone to the grocery store  where I've been able to help someone. Although the idea of helping someone has changed due to covid, I was still able to give recommendations and also receive help from fellow shoppers.

    This week I tried walking to more places instead of driving. Normally I would drive to nearby stores if I need anything even though it would only be a medium length walk to get there. I noticed a lot of the streets around my house don't have sidewalks so I was forced to walk in the road a lot of the time. Now I'm not saying that walking with...
