This challenge has proved to be much harder than I initially thought it would be. Without realizing it, at breakfast I created waste with my knife and paper plate and paper cup, I had a reusable water bottle but instead of using it I forgot and used a paper cup. Lunch however was much easier when all of my waste was compostable. Dinner was minimal waste so that was good and I was able to compost everything.But I ate more meat than I was going to. I am finding it very hard to eat locally especially because I don’t eat vegetables, not that there are many local vegetables anyway…
My sister sent me a package today, so I have the waste from the package that I will have to add to my trash bag. I didn’t have much extra waste, except I ate some of my friend’s starbursts which I forgot about the individual packaging. I followed my idea of only drinking water and the milk that the dining halls provide that is local so I followed that goal.
Also I have only been on the computer for about an hour today and have not charged any devices. Unfortunately after teaching swimming lessons I took a shower that was longer than I thought and was about 13 minutes long. My original goal was only ten minute showers.
I am going to need to try and improve my waste and food consumption habits for tomorrow!
