Today is the last day of No impact week. I think that this project was a successful and I am definateley going to continue some of the habits that I learned this week! One of the lessons that I learned this week was that packaging does not need to be required for food and is more of a waste than anything else. I am going to try to go to slayter with my own binsand mugs to decrease the amount of trash I accumulate. Another lesson I learned is that all my electronics, and lights do not need to be on all the time. I was easily able to find light without turning lights on and used windows as natural light (which Denison has a lot of study spaces like this).
I cannot lie and say I am really glad this No Impact Week is over. One of my de-stressers in life is straightening my hair which I was not allowed to do everyday. Also when I threw something out, I always felt guilty which is sad but I am glad I will not have any more guilt.
