Waste

Reduce Single-Use Disposables

    Well, it's been a ride!  I didn't exercise every day, which hurt my numbers, but I did exercise far more than 70 minutes per week, so on average I exceeded my modest 10 min per day goal on average.  
    I wish there had been a number of times per week other than 7 to make goals of.  I felt like I was cheating when I logged using a reusable mug on a day I was at home or brought my own coffee from home, but I did start bringing my own mug to the coffee shop when I did buy coffee, so I did save a few cups from hitting the landfill. Same general deal for single use containers and such.  Basically, my numbers for the amount of waste I diverted are severely inflated because of the way the challenge was set up.
    I am really glad I didn't choose the paper towel challenge because I would have failed very badly, but it did make me more aware every time I did use them. A future goal, perhaps?
    Peace, out.

    So I *thought* I powered down my computer last night, but this morning I got a critically low battery message and haven't been able to power it on in 45 minutes. Karma is a bitch. On the plus side, good thing I didn't teach this morning.

    I don't actually probably only buy coffee or food other than groceries one or twice a week, so the reusable and disposable questions aren't really that tough.
