Intelligent Consumption

Like all living things, humans are "open systems." We're part of - not separate from - our environment, and we continually exchange materials, energy and information with it. What happens when we eat a piece of fruit, for instance?

Through these lesson plans, your students will:
 

  • Understand where materials come from and how they are produced, used, and discarded.
  • Understand that we are responsible for the waste that we produce.
  • Use the ecological footprint to show how we contribute to production and consumption patterns.
