Some things are coming easily. I may be as bold to say that I would win the 6 minute shower event if it were in the Olympics (not to be confused with the 5 minute shower event). I unplug my electronics when I’m not using them and realized that I had my charger plugged into my computer a lot previously even when it was fully charged. The daily logs make it easier to remember what must be done.
However, some of my habits that produce waste are so mindless that I only realize I’m doing them when around other environmental studies students. For example, Megan caught me about to push the elevator button while holding a styrofoam plate of chips the other day. I don’t know why I almost pushed the button for 3 flights of stairs or grabbed that foam plate. Did I need that plate? No. People just offered me free food so I took it, evil serving method included.
Transportation- Usually our Tuesday field trips were the only time I ever got in a car here at Denison. Ever. But yesterday I accepted a ride when I was in a hurry. Today, however, I rode my bike to Ross’s market (shout out to Dr. Aguilar! I saw you walking out to your recycling bin today while I was huffing and puffing on my bike! You go, girl. Recycle that can. Yea.)
As far as food goes….. ummm…….is anyone successful with this? I’ve cut down on my packaged snacks but I think that is in the waste category, not food.
