It seems that with every day that passes this week, I think about the future more and more. I think about how my individual actions will affect those around me, both mentally and physically, and how my “impact-less actions” are starting to become addictive! I strive to take shorter showers without a second thought; I find myself unplugging unused cords from outlets subconsciously; and I am willing to pass-up Slayter snacks and drinks because of the packaging that I would throw away five minutes later.
Dr. Aguilar mentioned that this project could potentially become life-changing, and after reading “No Impact Man” and going through 4 days of “No Impact Week,” I would certainly say that my life has changed. I can confidently say that I will strive to be conscientious about my environmentally impacting decision-making and that I will encourage others around me to do the same.
