The first step to the solution is understanding what is meant by motion. Klubertnaz and Holloway say that by motion or change we understand a transition from potency to act, the acquiring of any new perfection in any way. This motion or change can take different forms or kinds. There are four kinds: local motion, accidental changes in both qualities and quanitiy, substantial change, and immanent activities of cognition and appetition. The starting point for this motion argument is local motion.
Getting a good deal on food items feels good but can lead to spending more money and building up on more food than needed. Not shopping hungry will surprisingly also reduce the amount of food wasted. You may be more likely to purchase on impulse based on what sounds good to eat at the time, which can lead to uneaten and wasted food. Another tip is to buy loose produce. This is a great way to buy just the right amount of food, based on a weekly plan, and also cut down on packaging waste.
program should instead, be only available for use when paying for healthy foods because this policy change would provide better nutritional, medical and economic value to the U.S. While “everything in moderation” is a commonly used phrase for a healthful diet, it can be very hard for those depending on assistance programs to incorporate healthier, whole, and unprocessed food into their diets. For many that have relied on this assistance for years it is a matter of an incorrect assumption. There is a postulation that processed foods are cheaper and more filling alternatives to healthy food.

If we could only reuse, reduce, and recycle; just these three simple things and we can start our journey to a cleaner, healthier, and happier planet. The average American tends to go through 4.6 pounds of trash a day, 1,675 a year. That’s 600 times their body weight. Every day Americans throw away enough garbage to fill 63,000 garbage trucks. From all that garbage, half can be recycled.
Recycling During the early 1970s, as communities across the United States saw their landfills filling up, attention turned to alternative methods of garbage disposal, such as incineration and recycling. While incineration proved to be a thorny issue due to its toxic ash byproduct, recycling was embraced by Americans as an effective way to offset rising garbage production rates. Today, demand for recycled products is beginning to match supply, and the percentage of waste going into landfills and incinerators is decreasing steadily. In 1970, when Americans produced 121 million tons of municipal solid waste (MSW), three-quarters went directly into landfills, one-fifth was incinerated, and less than one-sixteenth was recycled. Now, with nearly double the MSW (more than 210 million tons per year), recycling accounts for almost one-quarter and incineration for a little over one-sixth.
consumer recycling behavior should be developed to enhance and increase the recycling activities which will result in conserving natural resources, increasing in economic benefits, and to keep the environment clean. Biswas, Lucata, McKee, Pulling, and Daughtraige (2000) claim that recycling objectives or items reduces its economical value because the product costs rely on its used materials more than the manufacturing service. Therefore, recycled items are usually cheaper than no recycled ones; but still consumers prefer the products that is not recycled because of its higher quality that the recycled product (Biswas et al., 2000).

Researchers categorize the products into different classes and graded structure, such that a consumer categorize a product based on how typical it is.
So “U.S. goals should continue to address the fact that these figures can be improved,” (Chait). If a system is simplistic and impartial, people are more likely to enjoy participating in it than in one that is confusing and inequitable.

There is no fool proof solution to our environmental issues, but if making recycling mandatory will improve our planet’s condition, then why not give it a chance?

With higher costs there may be less people, more stress for people in college, and a possible financial struggle for anyone who pays the higher costs. There will be a decrease in people with a college education. That said, there will also be a decrease in people with a higher paying job. Education is very important and should be taken advantage of because not everyone has the option to an education.Although college may not be for everyone, they should at least give it a shot to make sure. The more people with a college education, the better.

They would be able to make a better budget to buy groceries and other necessities, and still be able to spend money on fixing things that break. It would take away the need for two parents to work, which means that children will more likely have a parent home. This would also give people a chance to buy better quality food.
