We made it! I really enjoyed this week. It gave me the unique opportunity to look at my current behaviors and habits in an effort to improve and build upon them. I was surprised about how much effort needs to go into living no impact, it’s a little ironic. It only becomes difficult when we depend on the “normal” necessities of life. The most challenging goal was using my laptop instead of desktops computers(I am currently writing this post on a desktop computer…so im still trying). This one was so difficult for me because I don’t like lugging my laptop everywhere and I prefer to write papers,etc. on desktops for some reason. This thing about doing work on desktops probably stemmed from only using desktops growing up. The easiest goal was products because I use all eco-friendly/minimal impact products, so this day was easiest for me. I also let go of my disposable floss wands for this week since I dubbed them wasteful. The goals easiest for me to maintain are the 10 min showers, brushing teeth in shower, minimal water when hand washing,mild temperature showers, try to use laptop more, try to eat foods that I will finish and are compostable(I’m vegan..soo i’ll keep this up). Also, I will just continue living minimally b/c its awesome. My perspective on consumption has widened. I know see how easy it is to consume unknowingly, which also leads to buying uninformed. I like adding goals each day as well as doing a week long goal like food. It’s been great! I look forward to continuing it.
