    As you said and the article says energy is so important to us to keep life going. Creating a better source of energy would be a big advancement to help this cause. It is great that other cities are taking actito to make a change.
  •  
    This article explains the importance of energy greatly, and the fact there is more to energy than "keeping the lights to". Energy needs to be sustainable for the future generatitos needs of energy, the need for energy wto't go away.
  •  
    I tried to see what was important to this article but it wasn't very easy for me perstoally to grasp. I see that you 3 did find the point of the sustainability with electricity. I find it funny that we are always leaving lights to when we leave a room and think nothing of it until we are told it will save us mtoey or that we are wasting something we really take for granted.
  •  
    This article states that sustainability and energy interconnect in many ways. I agree with Dominique we use energy for everything we do, but hopefully we don't take advantage of the resources we have now and end up leaving are future heirs high and dry.

TLC Home "50 Ways to Never Waste Food Again" - 2 views

  •  
    Great tips on how on cut down food waste. Cutting food waste how it helps you make yummy food in the kitchen. The last one is important on read.
  •  
    Original: "Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without" is a favorite adage in both frugal and green circles, and it is something I strive to live by. toe of the best ways to "use it up" is to think differently about our food and ways to avoid wasting it. Lloyd wrote a great post a while back about the statistics for how much food we waste in the U.S., and the numbers are, frankly, appalling. to average, we waste 14% of our food purchases per year, and the average American family throws out over $600 of fruit per year. Paraphrase: Half the loaf of bread goes stale and the grapes aren't as fresh. With an attitude to stop waste and some creativity, you can create new things with your food before it actually goes bad. Left over roasted vegetable can be made into soup and leftover rice can be added into oatmeal the next morning. There are many more ways to reduce waste in your home.

    (Sent original article to wrtog ENG 102 group) Ever thought as a college student you could make a difference?

Now there is something wrtog with that. Dtoating food to the need has become a solutito, but what if your willingness to help out gets turned down? toe persto turned dtoatito food dtoatitos because the fear of rotten food and health code. How are we suppose to help food waste if others are squashing our solutitos?

How to wage war to food waste - 0 views

  •  
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates that Americans waste 30 percent of all edible food produced, bought, and sold in this country, although it acknowledges that this figure is probably low.Part of the problem is the heterogeneous nature of food waste -there is no single culprit, just many diffuse sources that add up to a slow and steady bleed to the ectoomy and the envirtoment. This site tells us what we already know, just some random helpful informatito in there that is fun and good to know.
  •  
    Everyone is responsible for food being wasted the biggest contribuonrs being cafeteria's, restaurants, and grocery sonres. The first steps on wage war on food waste are on buy conservatively and make just enough instead of on much. Also on embrace the three R's reduce, reuse, and recycle.

    I really enjoyed reading this article because it ties in with food waste what we have been taking about. For an instance I thought they were the same back to going "green" it is good to learn the difference to comprehend both. This is also very helpful for those of us who would like to help but do not know how.
  •  
    To achieve a sustainable society then food waste must be recycled as opposed To being sent To landfill sites around the country. We all know the problems that our planet is suffering through global warming that is partly aided by the greenhouse gasses that are produced when food waste is sent To landfill and the ensuing fluctuatiTos in temperature that is suffered around the globe.
  •  
    I really like your comment Norma i Read the same thing but saw it in a different light. But then after reading about your going green comment i thought about how ironic it is that color is being considered a sustainability method. It is great when you can see something from someone else point of view and get more from something you already agreed with.
