    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 action to make a change.
  •  
    This article explains the importance of energy greatly, and the fact there is more to energy than "keeping the lights on". Energy needs to be sustainable for the future generations needs of energy, the need for energy won't go away.
  •  
    I tried to see what was important on this article but it wasn't very easy for me personally 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 on when we leave a room and think nothing of it until we are told it will save us money 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.

Composting at Home in Iowa City - 1 views

    Start the pile with a layer of coarse material like branches and twigs to allow air flow to the pile. For a carbon source, add 6 inches of leaves and other woody materials. For a nitrogen source, add 2-3 inches of grass clippings, kitchen wastes and garden wastes. Mix these two layers to speed up decomposition and then cover with 2 inches of dirt to control odors. Dampen the pile with water as new layers are added or more frequently if the weather is dry. The pile should be concave in the center to prevent runoff of water. The moisture content is sufficient when the surface of the pile glistens. to speed up decomposition, mix/turn the pile once a week and periodically sprinkle it with water to keep it moist. When the interior of the pile is no longer hot and the material has broken down into dark, crumbly soil, the composting is finished. The process usually takes 3-6 months.

It also shows what can be done to help this also helped with the comprehension because it gave examples so also an opportunity to reflect as well.

How to Stop Wasting Food - Getting More From Your Grocery Budget - AARP - 0 views

  •  
    To help reduce food waste you could recycle your spare food and make different food dishes. Another, thing you could do is save your lefTovers in a container where they are visible that way you can see the edible food you have. Remember it is still safe To use food past their expiration and "use by" date these dates refer To quality not safety. Lastly, you should shop for items you know you will use soon instead of items you do not need that way they don't go To waste.

Hungry for a group to safely deliver leftover food to charities - 0 views

  •  
    (Sent original article to wrong ENG 102 group) Ever thought as a college student you could make a difference? Well a group of Students from Pomona's College started to try to save food from being tossed out. They would package it and send it to a shelter to help those in need. 3.7 million adults struggle to put food on the table, but 1.5 million tons of food get wasted and thrown away. Now there is something wrong with that. Donating food to the need has become a solution, but what if your willingness to help out gets turned down? One person turned donation food donations because the fear of rotten food and health code. How are we suppose to help food waste if others are squashing our solutions?

They will begin by conducting surveys in regards to why the food is being thrown out in the first place then act on their findings.

    According to the most recent available statistics, more than 30 million tons of food was dumped in landfills in 2009, making food by far the most abundant material there by weight, the federal Environmental Protection Agency says. (That calculation excludes industrial, construction and hazardous waste.) This amounts roughly to 200 pounds a year for every man, woman and child in the United States.

    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 fluctuations 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.

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

  •  
    Great tips on how to cut down food waste. Cutting food waste how it helps you make yummy food in the kitchen. The last one is important to 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. One 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. On 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.

    Although there are many resources needed for food production, the smallest gesture towards saving food is an improvement. We need to utilize the most food possible in hopes to reduce our wastage by at least 15 percent.
