Not gonna lie, Day 2 was ROUGH. It was just one instance of caving after another. My roommate was getting breakfast at the Nest, and waking up groggy I didn’t even think to bring something to put their tasty breakfast sandwiches on, so used some tin foil. Huffman it will be for the rest of the week. However, there were a few small wins. I have been using my coffee thermos like crazy and have resisted many of the urges to buy naked juices and other treats from Slayter. I also spent a lot of time outside and made an effort to eat locally at dinner. Some other concerns and things I have noticed are just how crazy dedicated someone needs to be to have zero waste. Like this afternoon I went to floss my teeth and panicked after realizing I had created waste just by flossing. I also have a ton of snacks in my room. If I ate them I would be producing waste because of the leftover wrappers, but by not eating them there is still just as much waste. I keep wondering what exactly Colin Beavan did with all of the cans he must have had in his house prior to becoming no impact man. Are they all still just sitting there?
While there have been some losses today I am remaining optimistic that I can do better tomorrow.
side note: my hanky and cloth napkin are getting crazy gross
