Honestly, after this week I have officially decided to try and change my habits along with trying to influence others to change theirs. It was an enlightening experience to really be more connected with the amount of waste I produce and with my horrible habits as a human being. Today was great, I produced no waste and only used greenies which was amazing.
Wow, today was such an amazing day for this project in a sense of being able to enjoy some “ho-hum”. I was able to catch on some great reading that I have been putting off (thanks Caroline for the book suggestion). I cheated a little on my shower but still kept it under my usual ten minutes.
It was a lot of less adjustment today, I fell into a healthier and more eco-friendly way of life. There was just a sense of bliss today as I was able to lay under the sun with some friends while we worked on homework and talked about life. I could not imagine a more perfect day for the ability to relax in the grass.
Today was even more difficult then yesterday. I woke up with a stuffy nose and sore throat from some serious seasonal allergies. There was a moment when I seriously considered using tissues but instead found a towel…which I will have to wash. Then at breakfast this morning I was faced with the issue of using napkins, again I just used my pants.
So today was pretty rough, not only did I have some moral dilemmas about how much paper I had to print for each class..I also had trouble finding foods that did not make me feel like I was killing the planet. There was also some problems this morning with napkins and I had to wipe food on my pants.
