What's Urban Pollution?
Thank you for subscribing to my environmental educational channel! Your subscription motivates me to create more! Ecothot LLC is an environmental business based in Central New York State. This video is a short introduction to the independent research study with the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Student Donnie Monk will be conducting research on the development of art within BIPOC communities from the use of traditionally polluted textiles. This journey will be shared on different platforms to amplify black environmentalism. Traditionally, environmental education is not inclusive to the discussion of urban pollution. This video series will be encompassing the process of creating art, jewelry, and many upcycled products out of textiles traditionally polluted. Watch this video to learn about pollution and Syracuse, New York. Founders Puji San and Donnie Monk (Earthly Donnie) @ecoth0t @pujithegreatest @suny.esf @earthyldonnie @ecoth0t.upcycle

What exactly makes this chili sustainable or environmentally just? Typically, mainstream media presents sustainability as the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level. A Sustainable product is those products that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits while protecting public health and the environment over their whole life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials until the final disposal. However, from my experience working in the field, I have learned that this definition does not protect communities that face socio-economic barriers. This chili recipe is a family recipe, my mother from Cleveland, Ohio taught me how to make chili at a very young age. The community I was raised in still faces food justice concerns. Our community garden was our only source of vegetables, and my mother took me with her to volunteer and purchase what was available. The fact is that there are not enough sustainable options for people of color in low socio-economic parts of a major city. Reasons for this include lack of culturally relevant food, lack of transportation, and lack of availability. This chili recipe is just as sustainable as a recipe from a farmer’s market because of many different factors that are not traditionally explored in mainstream media. This chili considered one of the three components of sustainability and that is economics. It is a cost-effective meal for large families. This meal is also nutritionally balanced, and if you recycle your cans and compost your vegetables, there is no difference in what we call sustainable food choices. When I studied sustainable food and nutrition, I learned that sustainable food choices are about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, not being flashy in an overpriced farmers' market. If that were truly the only sustainable option, in economics our economy would have already failed.
