    This Year eco challenge was really great, I really enjoyed this even though I don't attend the school anymore and I look forward to joining the HMS team every year for the eco challenge. :P

    In the drawdown book they include telepresence as a possible solution which I thought was pretty interesting. it helps slow down travel, meetings, ect. which is really good so we can reduce the overall carbon food print of society, at the moment this is basically zoom which we all know that it's nice but after like 20 minutes it is not a great...

    Wearing a jacket during the winter to reduce heating always helps because heating and cooling use so much energy. It also helps to unplug things and turn off lights.

    For me I feel when my stomach is 80% full that's a good amount of food, or just when you have that thought, "should I eat more, I can but I don't really feel like it" something like that is a good sign that you have eaten a good portion.

    I was really startled when I found out how much refrigeration contributes to climate change and how much much carbon dioxide it could save if we have better alternatives.

    Transportation was a very interesting and a very complicated topic about climate change when I was researching  the topic, especially when it come's to the battery and how the ingredients inside the batteries how so interconnected, the biggest challenges when it come's to transportation in particular was the battery weight and how larger...

    I'm kinda slowly noticing that when I eat more slowly and with a little more awareness that the food tastes better, I never new why food's that I had very infrequently tasted so good, and I kinda realized that when I eat food's that I don't get very often I 1, eat slowly and actually savor the food, 2 be more mindful of the ingredients, tastes,...

    I hope everyone learned some new things and was able to start some practices that they can implement in their daily lives all of the time.
