Today I really wanted to go back to the strictness I had at the beginning of the week. I tried my best to eat locally and I honestly had great meals and I felt very full after them. I am really glad that I was able to participate in this project because I feel like it has given me a knew outlook on being an environmentalist.
Today I was much less conscious of my waste when it came to meals. I received another package in the mail, so my garbage bag is very disappointing. I also have realized that there are many things that are just 100% waste. An example is Q-tips. There is nothing that can be reused, saved, or recycled on a Q-tip.
I woke up this morning feeling good because I brought my little container to get oatmeal form curtis. I ate this and they even had bananas which they hadn’t for awhile so I left feeling full and accomplished. One of my friends was once again graciously willing to walk to Huffman with me for lunch and we were able to have a nice walk over and catch up on our days.
I was having some coffee at a place in Granville, and I realized once my coffee came that the only cremer they had was the kind in the tiny little disposable containers with foil tops. My coffee was really hot and I love coffee and creamer so I used two of these stupid things. This made me think about why it is so common for places to provide these little creamer containers in the first place.
I sat at lunch today feeling proud that I had convinced my friends to take the trek to huffman with me to avoid using disposable dining ware and have more control over what I ate. I remembered that I set a goal to avoid eating meat this week, I initially picked up a chicken wrap and then realizing that I shouldn’t eat chicken I pawned it off to my friend, and made a salad instead.
