No Impact Week is an 8-day opportunity for individuals and groups to experiment with low-impact living. It’s a challenge for most people, but also a great way to understand what we really use, what changes we can make, and our own limits.
Step One: Buy nothing new but food this week. I went grocery shopping yesterday. Bought lots of stuff in packaging, which is frustrating. I’m not aware of any bulk-buying opportunities in Carlsbad.
Today’s goal: stop making trash. This is more difficult, since we have a diabetic cat who is supposed to eat canned food, not dry. Our recycling center doesn’t accept the cans for recycling, as far as I know. So they go in the trash–two cans so far today. Why can’t companies make big cans? Maybe I’ll have to start a petition on this.
