I celebrated Earth Day today…NOT!
Instead, I used extra water to shave this morning.
I flushed the toilet two extra times.
I let the water in the shower run a minute longer than necessary.
I left a light on in a room I didn’t occupy.
I let the furnace in the house run when it didn’t need to.
Then I left the door open to heat the outside too.
I commuted a long distance with only myself in the car.
I made 10 extra copies just because.
I had tuna for lunch.
I am going to burn wood in a camp fire and then not make s’mores.
I am going to sit and let my car idle for an extra three minutes while I check my Instragram feed on my phone.
I am going to stand outside my fridge with the door open and stare at the contents trying to figure out what I want.
I am going to only drink half a glass of water and toss the rest.
I am going to fill up my garbage with recyclable materials and put garbage in my recyclables.
I didn’t remove the cap from a bottle I threw in the garbage.
I might even burn some plastic.
Tomorrow, I’ll go back to doing what I normally do. I’ll be conscientious, maybe.
