In thought of one among my programs Senior 12 months, a classmate of mine would ship takeout lunch day-after-day, and on the end of the class, she would throw away the plastic clamshell, bag, and utensils on her methodology out the door. I watched this happen repeatedly, and sooner or later I keep in mind contemplating to myself, “How are you going to care regarding the environment and nonetheless create quite a bit waste?” That night when making dinner, I opened my fridge and realized that I was doing the exact same issue: EVERYTHING was packaged in plastic. I saved wanting spherical my residence — in my toilet, my magnificence cabinet, my cleaning merchandise, and my closet — and realized that each factor was plastic in a way or one different. I seen that I wasn’t residing in alignment with my values, and that my day by day actions have been subsidizing the very enterprise that I had been protesting in opposition to.
