It is over, No Impact Week has finally come to an end. I truly gave it my all this week, and i feel really good about myself and the class as well. With NIW coming to a conclusion it does not mean i will go back to my old habits of being a lazy wasteful human being.
Today i have had a successful start. My shower was about 45 seconds, and yes i am clean. I find quick showers very easy and should be done world wide. People who sit and sing in the shower are responsible for so much waste water. If there was a way to show how many gallons were used in each shower people would become more conscious about how long there showers are.
Day 3 was probably my best day. I am so proud of myself, if you can remember i had a problem with taking to many elevators. Today i walked past every elevator i saw. I used my own two legs and walked myself up the stairs. To add on to my amazing day, I never drove a car.
So day two has been great, I have completely eliminated my waste on campus today. I did not purchase any plastic bottles at Slayter because i had my own water bottle to hydrate myself throughout the day. When I had to purchase food I used a Greenie and did not create any waste. However todiay has not been perfect.
My goals for this week are simple, initially i thought it would be easy to resist buying plastic bottles from Slayter. But what do you know? I have already bought 3 drinks. I feel awful considering 2 of the drinks I bought were water bottles. From now on i will carry my OWN re-usable water bottle so i never have to buy one from Slayter again.
