So far this week has been a big adjustment. I started on Sunday by taking showers very sparingly in what some would call “military style”. I turn off the water while washing my hair, then turn it back on to rinse it off. This has proved to be a very effective method of greatly reducing my water-use.
Today, we started waste management. I went to Slayter for dinner, and it was very difficult to avoid waste. For my sides, I chose fruit instead of packaged goldfish or chips and I neglected to get a drink so that I could reduce the waste of that cup. It is definitely hard to cut waste when you want a snack because most small snacks, such as energy bars are packaged. I’m going to continue to reduce my waste and if I want a snack, I will select unpackaged food.
