Day 31 - One Month Mark!
They say it takes a month to form a habit, right? I suppose that depends on what habit you're trying to form. If it's something like remembering to water your plants, a month makes sense. If it's a complete life overhaul, I think it takes a bit more time, which is why I'm dedicating a year to this transformation.
I feel that in one month I've learned a lot, changed a lot, and more than anything become so much more aware of what I use and what I waste.
If you're reading this, thank you! It's nice to have support on this journey. I hope it's inspired you in some small way.
See you tomorrow!
Spending the weekend in a place like this gave me hope that despite what humans have done to ravage the planet, incredible biodiversity still exists, and there are people who are actively safeguarding it.

How much water does the dishwasher actually use?
So far, I've found that living less wastefully is just a matter of tuning in my brain a little bit more to the stuff I do every day.
In a country that's in the middle of a pretty scary water scarcity problem, it's hard to justify those long, relaxing shower sessions.
Something that's been bothering me is that we get liter bottles of water delivered to our apartment daily.
