Today was probably the worst out of the other days consumption/waste wise. I wasted things that were not necessary. Also there were things I had no control and had to consume. For instance, I was on the computer longer than what I promised since I had to use the computers for work. For one of my side projects I used new paper to create posters. I just realized that the lights did not have to be on since this was during the afternoon when the sun was out. The markers I used to make the posters were paint markers and sharpies. I don’t think that they’re toxic but some sort of chemicals were exposed. I was inevitably breathing in the sharpie while drawing, which is probably not healthy.
For food I had brunch in curtis and the options were limited of course. I limited the amount of plates I used but putting as much as I could on 1 plate. I had meal x for dinner due to time and workload. In slayter, I noticed that the deli line gives a plate and tissue paper on top of it. I refused the paper plate and had the deli maker just wrap it to-go. I never really got the logic covering the plates with tissue paper when the plates itself can hold the food fine. Downside is that I got soup, which I ended up wasting more paper. I also used plastic utensils since I ate in slayer.
Today was definitely a challenge since it was hectic and I was on-the-go most of the time. Again this is when efficiency and sustainability somewhat clash. It is difficult to find the healthy balance just like Colin mentions in his book.
Shower time: still at 9 min… I can’t go below 9 so I am going to accept it since I’ve beaten my goal of 10mins.
