Today was good except for one big exception. I drove my car! My friend asked if I could help her go pick up three cakes and I said yes. It did not seem like a good idea for two girls to try to carry three cakes up the hill. So, I caved and drove my car.
Today has been good so far. I haven’t created any waste and I achieved my goal of taking a 4 minute shower!
Last night I was telling my mom on the phone about this project and the changes I have been trying to make. She said it sounded nice, but how much impact could one person really have.
Today was a good day!!! I managed to not use paper towels or napkins all day long and kept my laptop use down to only 1 hour!!!! I did make a mistake today when I got a soy milk and a piece of carrot cake in slay that both came in packaging. But that was my only trash for the day so it wasn’t too bad.
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.
This morning was a good start to no impact week. I managed to get ready this morning without turning on any lights because the sun was already out. I must confess that I normally take two showers a day – one in the morning and one after I run – but today I skipped my morning shower and by doing so also skipped using the hair dryer.
