Nothing to exciting happened today so I thought I would use my last post to talk about how no impact week affected me.
The biggest thing it learned was to be more aware of my actions. I now have a reason to try and be more sustainable we’re as before I didn’t care at all. I think learning about what being sustainable is was the key to starting to live no impact.
One of my biggest goals was to learn how to recycle. We’ll luckily Jeramy king came to my science and the environment class and answered all of my questions.
The co mingled recycling dumpster accepts plastics 1-7, cans, glass, paper, plastic scraps, mostly everything you would think is recyclable. You even don’t half to wash out plastic bottle residue.
Not being able to spend money has been the key to being no impact for me. My daily life hasn’t really changed all that much. The only problem is that I can’t eat a lot of the time. Today was extra hard because I couldn’t go to lunch because of my 11:30 class, and I can’t to Huffman dinner because of an project where I need to go watch track practice.
After I posted last night I ended up hanging out with my friends and they were drinking some beers. Beer cans and bottles are easily recyclable, but I noticed that no one was recycling their empty cans and bottles. The campus drinks a lot of beer witch produces a lot of trash, like the cardboard cases the beer comes in.
I didn’t know what to expect going into no impact week. Last week in class I learned all about how bad I am at being sustainable and started to pay attention to the amount of things I buy on a day to day basis.
I started off my day planning on taking a 5 minute shower.
