Guilty Confessions

Environmentalists like to act high and mighty sometimes, like earth goddesses destined to restore the ecosystem and punish those who harm it. Labor Day Weekend I was feeling determined. I ran two miles to watch Suicide Squad at the theater, and ran back. How environmentally conscious, right? I know I seem perfect, but I have some confessions to make.

  1. I leave my laptop to charge overnight. As it only takes my baby two hours to charge, I’m wasting that extra electricity. I’m just too lazy to wake up at midnight.
  2. My face wash contains micro-beads. I’m sorry, really. All the creams at my local store contain these tiny plastic pieces that usually end up polluting the ocean. They work wonders for my pores but I know I need to find a new product.
  3. I don’t recycle right. I don’t have a car so I can never take used batteries to a proper recycling location. In addition, when I’m cleaning my apartment sometimes I’ll throw recyclable things in the trash.

What are your guilty confessions? Do you take regular plane trips? Do you love long showers? Share!

  1. For starters I participate in the capitalist market as a consumer, which is a rather severe environmental crime. Not much I can do about that one though. I also tend to throw away things that could be composted, eat meat, and love warm (but short) showers. Another confession is that I leave the dehumidifier on in my room when I don’t need it, because it’s literally the only source of heat (and a poor one at that). So I’m apparently not much of an environmentalist :p

  2. At least you are aware, thinking about it, and trying hard. I am definitely not perfect. I sometimes take long showers or even a bath when my muscles and joints really seem to need it… And I do have a car… I do try to do other things right.

    • I’m with you on that. Which reminds me that this week’s eco-challenge is to use #ecotainers! You can save a little energy and plastic by bringing your own containers like reusable lunch bags or grocery bags along.


  3. Thank you for following my blog. I am quite Earth conscious but my confession is putting a few water bottles in the trash can when I am feeling lazy.
