Today, I started off my No Impact week by trying to find my reusable coffee cup. Unfortunately, after a tentative search and the pressing issue of being late to my Environmental studies class, I gave up. So, I had to resort to using a paper cup that I had to throw away, along with the lid and the pod for coffee. After starting off the day a little rough, I finished up my classes and got to my next big challenge: a sustainable, healthy lunch that did not force me to throw anything away. I went to Slayter and got a greenie that I put my vegetarian rice bowl in. I have to say, that was a really good meal because I added more red peppers than normal so it was sweet. I will be ordering this more often. After reading No Impact Man, I have become a lot more conscious of the time I spent with people, so I invited a few friends to sit out on the quad and relax for a while before I started my homework. On most days, I would eat one meal and a ton of little snacks that I would take to my study spot. Of course, all of those snacks are packaged, so for the week I will avoid them. While today I just focused on eating habits and trash, it didn’t start off too shabby. I’m looking forward to the rest of the week.
