I have had just a great Day 1 of No Impact Week. I’ve discovered that my environmental impact will be quite minimal if I continue to sleep through my morning shower and breakfast, like I did today. Oops. I also discovered that instead of doing homework after class in my room with the lights off, I just took naps instead. And just woke up. I’m gonna blame it on the mono…
I was so ready for No Impact Week during Thanksgiving break, I even took my parents to a winter farmer’s market! My dad was way too into the alpaca hats, as my mom shoved countless squash into my pockets and her purse. It was quite the event. Little did I realize that coming back and making absolutely no impact on the environment would be pretty hard.
One of my main goals of NI Week was to stop snacking between dining hall meals (which are often subpar, in my opinion..), therefore cutting down on processed foods and foods that are not local. I’m still questioning why I thought that was a good idea. It’s slowly killing me.
Other than that, Day 1 has been a peach. I’m looking forward to the week and the challenges it holds. Although I am already envisioning my impending doom…I have a horrible addiction to post-it notes. I’ll keep you guys posted on that one (haha get it..)
Good luck to everyone!
