Last night I tried to convince my friends to join me in our No Impact week. I started off by explaining what No Impact meant and the sacrifices they would have to make to be apart of it. I went on to explain how being apart of no impact will help our ecosystem as well as their own personal lives. However, they looked at me like an idiot and quickly shut me down. This made me realize that many people are not willing to sacrifice the luxuries they have come accustomed to over the years, even if it will benefit themselves personally. I am not sure if it is only my friends who do not see the importance of conserving or if it is the majority of people on this campus. I challenge you to try to convince your friends to participate in the rest of No Impact Week. Hopefully you will see better results.
On another note, I have significantly improved since yesterday morning. I have used minimal electricity in my room and have used natural light (not beer) as much as possible. Last night I turned off my fan that I usually have on when I sleep and simply opened the window for the cool air. This made me realize the amount of electricity I consume when I am asleep. I plan on never using my fan when I am sleeping ever again. Hope everyone is doing well keep working hard.
