  • Topic of this Week: "Green Consumption (April 21, 2019)"

    Green consumption behaviour is a form of pro-environmental  consumption that harms the environment as little as possible, or even  benefits the environment. This notion seems to be unpopular in our  country, despite the fact that Vietnam, together with four other  countries, discharge 60 per cent of the world’s plastic waste into the  ocean.
    A green consumption behaviour comes from an individual acting ethically, motivated not only by personal needs,  but also by the respect and preservation of the environment. To help  combat climate change, behaviours that are strongly encouraged including  (but not limited to) (i) decreasing energy and water consumption; (ii)  changing your eating and transportation habits to conserve natural  resources; and (iii) reducing, reusing, and recycling to be more  environmentally friendly.
    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:
     1. Please share your story. What did you do as an action of green  consumption? Do you think it's enough? If not, what else should you do  and how hard it is to commit?
     2. Is it fashionable to follow the international trend of sustainable consumption? Explain?
     3. What are the benefits of engaging in green consumption? What are the  obstacles of Vietnamese people to changing their consumption  behaviours?
     4. Do you think green consumption can really help battle  environmental pollution in Vietnam? If yes, how do you encourage people  taking action?

    Coffee

    (07:11:30 AM 16/04/2014)

     Are you coffee drinker?

    How do you take your coffee? Do you take it black, or do you like to add milk or sugarto it? Do you prefer skim milk (milk with no fat), whole milkcream, or half-and-half (half milk, half cream)?

    Drip coffee is popular in the U.S. You brew drip coffee in a coffee machine that uses paper filters (or sometimes wire mesh filters). In other countries, espresso (a stronger drink made with a special machine) is more popular.

    coffee afficionado is someone who's really into finding the best coffee possible. If you're an afficionado, you might do things like buying whole beans and  grinding the beans yourself. You might only buy fair trade beans, which means that the farmers who grew them were treated fairly. You'll also want to pay attention to when the beans wereroasted and how light or dark the roast is.

    When you drink coffee every day, you develop a caffeine habit. You drink it to get your caffeine fix. A lot of people say that they can't function until they've had their morning coffee. If you want the tast of coffee, but don't want to get wired up (the feeling that you get from drinking a lot of caffeine), you can drink decaf instead of regular caffeinatedcoffee.

    For a lot of people, going out to a coffee shop is part of the fun of drinking coffee. Thebarista (a coffee-making specialist) can make you an iced coffee or espresso-based drinks like a cappuccino, which uses foamed milk, or a latté, which uses regular heatedmilk.
