    The economy is something I have never given much thought about so it was really intresting to read about. Here are some main points I took away from this chapter: The most common measure of economic progress is the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which measures a nation’s economic activity. For the past sixty years GDP has been the main method...

    I never thought about the impact that Amazon's two day shipping has on the environment. I also never realized that that flying coach was a good way to lessen the carbon impact when flying. Here are some of the main points I learned in this section: Amazon has become the most popular online shopping center. People love the free two day shipping;...

    I never realized how much water is wasted, and how many people don't have access to safe drinking water. I also never realized how climate change affects our safe drinking water, so that was very interesting to read about. Here are the main ideas I took away from the section on water. More than a billion people worldwide do not have access to...

    I never realized that meat consumption affects climate change and how much water we use so greatly. I tried to go vegetarian but only lasted for a few days. I have ADHD so meat really helps me focus. However, now looking at how greatly meat consumption impacts our environment, I will work on lowering the amount of meat I eat. It also amazed me...

    I have always known that climate change is affecting our planet and that we waste huge amounts of water and food, but I never thought much about it. I didn't realize how important it is for us to take action immediately until recently. Here are some main points I took away from the "A Call To Sustainability" Section.    Ecosystems...

    With the recent shelter in place orders my neighborhood has started leaving kind notes and signs out for support.  We have also begun a grocery delivery system if anyone needs it.  When this is all over I plan on joining a restoration project in a local climbing area.

    This week I went on a virtual tour of the waste recovery facilities in Tacoma. I learned that Tacoma's landfill is already full and so our garbage has to go 30 miles to a landfill in Pierce County. I also was always curious about where food waste goes and learned that it goes to Puyallup to the composting factory. I also learned that recycling...

    This week I supported a local business and bought only what I needed. Buying only what I needed was pretty easy due to the quarantine since my family has been mostly only buying groceries. But I paid more attention while grocery shopping. I slowed down and more thoroughly considered what was want versus what was a need, as well as tried to...

    This week I have been doing a lot of reflecting, and the cool thing about that is that is takes many forms! After last week's class and the endless horror that has been the news, I definitely let myself feel some anger and grief around that. I went on some nice walks through the quiet downtown of my town with my sister and did my best to pick...

    This week was a challenging one to focus on sustainability for me personally, as the semester is wrapping up and I am a graduating senior. I was able to make time to watch "Supersize Me 2" with my house one night though, which was an interesting synopsis on the changes that the fast food industry has undergone since Supersize Me came...
