CHAPTER ELEVEN -‐-‐ Creating Community
Our beautiful city
The issue I identify with is the environment. With this issue comes a quest for an unpolluted earth, clean eating and chemical-‐ free home and body care products. As far as the ambition for a clean earth goes, I could hold garbage clean-‐ups at local parks as a way to call awareness to this issue. I could advertise my event with posters and online, and ask friends, family and even strangers to come out and support the event. As for the aspiration for natural food and products, the local Farmer’s Market in Springer’s Market Square sells sustainable organic products. By buying from these vendors, and encouraging others to do the same, I’d be making a difference by getting people to adopt sustainable living habits. A clean earth and healthy eating are causes that will benefit every person on this earth! I want these objectives not only for myself, but for the future of the human population. I can remember the changes I’d like to make by keeping an online Me 2 We Journal. I will do this online to save paper-‐-‐ I had the same intention when I decided to create this project digitally. In my online journal, I can record new findings on environmental affairs, brainstorm ideas for environmental initiatives and document my feelings regarding the issue. If I ever feel lost or uninspired in my quest for environmental sustainability, I can turn back to my Fresh produce at the Farmer’s Market journal and read it to give myself a boost of motivation. Also, I can look to the support of others to keep me going. By getting involved with environmental functions within my community, I will meet like-‐minded people who share my passion. These friends will keep me involved in eco-‐friendly practices.
