    Food Smart Seafood Choices
    Many states and countries have advisories on eating fish. Find out what is advised for your region. Do you think your diet choices fall within these guidelines? What steps do you need to take to make sure that they do?

    I typically have learned to look for fish that is not previously frozen and locally sourced. Seafoodwatch.org was a good reminder that I am sticking to the right choices.
  • Reflection Question
    Nature Spend Time Outside
    Rachel Carson said that we need the beauty and mysteries of the natural world for our spiritual and emotional development. Does that ring true for you? What are the implications for a culture that spends most of its time indoors?

    I feel more at peace with myself when I spend more time outdoors and in nature.

    What single-use items (e.g. straws, coffee cups, vegetable bags, plastic bags) do you regularly use? What could be substituted instead?

    Skip the straw, reusable coffee cup, bring reusable bags for perishables and shopping.
