So I have been spending time on the environmental minstries blog, website and facebook page a lot lately. I am so interested in environmental issues but I feel so useless.

At school I have tried to encourage recycling but that only lasted for a little bit because administration wasnt into it. The cafeterian uses styrofoam for everything. :( We had what I believe to be potato starch (decomposible) forks a few weeks ago but people complained and so those disappeared. I am the one who constantly turns the light off in the shower rooma nd the bathroom. I've been told it doesn't matter because the school creates our own electricity. Sorry people, but it does matter.

We waste so much energy. THe dorm rooms and offices feel like they are 1600 degrees. I have my window wide open and a fan on and I am still very hot in my room. They could just turn the temperature down...but no. This dormitory wastes so much and it makes me sad.

I am considering applying for the eco-stewards program. It would be an oppurtunity to be with other people (young adults) that care about the environment and our role as stewards of the earth. I would also learn a lot from some amazing people. Oh and it's also a chance to spend time with Rob, Becky and HEATHER LUCAKS (who I haven't seen in years). I have learned so much from them in the past!

  1. I didn't know you were into eco-stuff on campus. That's awesome, and you are right, why are we using styrofaum anything?
