We just got back from L.A. last night, and if there's a city that makes you think about consumption and polluting transportation, L.A. is certainly one. We were actually quite busy with a packed weekend, so I didn't have much time to reflect on this year's Blog Action Day theme, the environment. And I guess that is my point...that I find daily life so full and busy, that even though I care about our future and environment, I'm way too focused on feeding Tesla, getting to and from work on time, remembering our social engagements, trying to keep in touch with loved ones, etc. But changes have to start somewhere. We do our share in recycling and buy organic, sustainable items when possible. Yet I catch myself drinking bottled water at work. And I don't have a mug for all the tea I drink, and use the disposable ones. Shame on me. So my post here is a declaration that I will use only a mug now, and I will bring my own permanent water bottle to stop drinking bottled water when possible. Small steps count. And this is what I will teach Tesla. [update]
Here is my new mug and my water jug in the background.
