I made it safe and sound to my destination and I didn’t have nearly as much waste as normal today. I did use my water bottle (refillable) all day. Note to you travelers: don’t fill it until you get past security since you can’t take liquids through. I filled it at the nearest water fountain which was tricky when only a trickle of water came out of the spout. Maybe next time I will fill it at a restaurant instead. The only waste I had was from the wrapper of my taco’s that I had for lunch. I even borrowed a book from the library instead of buying one at the airport.
Today’s book is “The World Without Us” by Alan Weisman. I’m only about 50 pages into the book but I want to read more. It’s exactly what the title suggests; what would the world be like without us. The writer is very vivid and his use of imagery is wonderful. He has an extensive Bibliography section and a web site so I imagine I will be doing some homework when I’m done. The only warning is that the book is pretty depressing and at the same time beautiful. I will follow up with my review as I get deeper into the book but right now I’m intrigued with the chapter on NYC. I didn’t realize how much of the ecosystem was changed to build the city.
Alright, I’m off to find some dinner. Stay green!
