This week the hardest thing for me has been reducing my shower time. I have been trying to reduce it but by the time I am done I and I check the time it is about the same. I have reduced my shower time but only by about three minutes. What I plan for tomorrow’s shower is having a friend tell me how much time I have been in the shower. With this I hope I can know pace myself since she will remind me every five minutes. My friends have also been a great reminder for this week and my roommates have started to pick up on reducing waste making it the easiest.
To reduce my waste I printed an article double sided and I made the text smaller so it would use less paper. During my meal times, I made sure to get only the reasonable amounts of food that I know I would finish so I would not throw much away or I compost it. I also have been eating foods that are not individually packaged so I can reduce waste. Sorting out the garbage taught me that one of my main waste comes from wrappers so I am staying away from them.
