    It is important to take care of pollinators because they ensure healthy and adequate food production of crops and many other plants. They help maintain genetic diversity among plants and many ecosystems would vanish without the help of pollinators.

    turned off the thermostat for a few hours to save energy

    I think for me the biggest barrier is forgetfulness, but having a backup water bottle already in the car defeats that.

    Altoona water authority, twelve surface water locations in west central Blair County, coming from the Juniata River watershed of the Susquehanna River Basin.

    It does surprise a bit because that’s a big number of good food being thrown to waste. I believe I’d use the extra money for bills that need to be paid or healthier food that we could be eating. Never waste a food because there is so many people in need of a meal.  It’s devastating!

    I think this is true! I think that eating healthy to make my body better is better than letting my body get bad, and then worrying about it.

    I used to buy several bottles of water a day to avoid having to pack my reusable water bottle and refill it throughout the day. Today, I made an effort to make my metal water bottle and seek out drinking fountains and refill stations rather than going to the dining hall to buy a new bottle.

    I noticed that I was able to think more clearly while not using my phone or TV, instead of going on social media or watching TV, I read a book and did homework for an hour without using my phone or laptop.

    To incorporate other personal values into an exercising routine I workout with friends and go on nature runs/hikes with them. Pennsylvania is a beautiful place for this.

    Practicing gratitude can keep you motivated to work for a better world by making you realize what makes you feel good as a person, and continuing to do those things, like helping other people.
