  • REFLECTION QUESTION
    Electricity Generation Learn More about Micro Wind
    Micro turbines can be placed on large structures to take advantage of stronger, steadier breezes. The Eiffel Tower now sports vertical axis turbines that produce electricity for use on site. Where could micro turbines potentially be installed in your city?

    I would love to see microwind used in the DC area! Since there are not a ton of very tall structures, maybe it supports many green roofs/microwind combinations?

    Does anyone here use meal kit services? I'm feeling very conflicted. I've been using HelloFresh for about a month and doing their vegetarian plan. It's great because as a pretty recent vegetarian, it's providing me lots of meals other than pasta that are really good. It's also the perfect amount of food for me. on the other hand, there's so much packaging (apparently less so than Blue Apron but still more than I'm comfortable with). Some of it is recyclable but a lot of it isn't. I love how little food waste I'm producing but feel really guilty about the packaging. Thoughts?
