It’s the half way point of no impact week and as others are mentioning, it is difficult to imagine how my rush to take a shorter a shower, decreased napkin usage and attempt to finish all of my food on my plate is not a wasted effort.

Going to the library rather than back to my room in between classes has also been a energy saving and productive decision. Not only do I get more work accomplished throughout the day by being in a quiet working environment, but I also feel better about using school computers rather than plugging in my personal computer as well as not turning on the lights in my room for just me to benefit from.
