I feel like I didn’t do as well today as I did yesterday. Yesterday I only had one piece of trash, but today I had 5. I ate a granola bar this morning and then my mom sent me an easter package were everything inside was wrapped in plastic. I was happy to be surprised by the package, but sad by all the plastic material that it came with.
There were some small wins today though!!!! First, I used my reusable coffee cup to get coffee in slay and the lady at the register was actually nice about it! Second, when my friend asked me to drive her into town I explained that I didn’t want to drive down because of the project and instead we had a lovely walk to CVS. Third, my morning run outside was so much better than my usual Tuesday morning trip to the gym and I got to see the cows on the running trail in Granville. Forth, I managed to not use a napkin or paper towel all day long and this was exciting.
I’m a vegetarian, along with most of my friends, and since it was rib night in Huff everyone wanted to go to Slayter for dinner. This was a bit of a setback because it meant I had to get my sandwich in a cardboard container. I miss the greenies and hope they come back soon.
I’m sitting in the library typing this and plan to try to not use my electronics when I go back to my room. My goal for tomorrow is to not make as much trash as I did today.
