I went to the kangaroo patting snake cuddling festival tonight in Slayter and it was a lot of fun! However, all the food wares are all made of plastics. But, that did not stop me from giving my No impact week a grand finale. I brought my own fork and knife (it’s already become a habit) and therefore I did not have to use the plastics that they provided.
Having learned from yesterday’s experiences when the dishwasher broke down, I brought my own silverware with my all day just in case some thing like wise would happen again. Luckily I was able to use the regular silverware dining hall provided and did not produce any food waste because I made sure to take not more than I could eat.
I really liked the talk about Ho-hum during class today. Therefore I decided to spend my day without cellphone. I do have the common habit of checking cell phone whenever I’m not occupied with some other task, it’s like some sort of mental fixation.. Anyway, a day without cell phone is actually not as bad as you would think.
My day has been going smoothly so far. I fell asleep pretty late last night and I thought of a lot of possible ways to conserve energy and lower carbon footprint.
When you think at night, somewhat outrageous thoughts tend to come up: should people travel less? should people cut down from leisure traveling by air or any sort of transportation?
Today is the first day of no impact week. I haven’t had meat for two days and now I’m hungry.
Since last weekend, I have made a lot of conscious decisions. I unplugged all my devices when I didn’t need them. I took short showers to conserve water. My phone charger broke on Saturday morning therefore I haven’t had access to phone calls and texting.
