Although I study sustainability, I’m not really a very green person. I tend to think that the best changes will come from the top down, with legislation and policies about the way we use resources. That said, I have thought some lately about my own resource usage. I’ve been thinking some about Haiti, and my friends there. What would I do if disaster dictated that I live with the bare minimum day to day? Water, light, shelter, all the things I take for granted…..I shoud be more careful, more thoughtful…..and as a result, I’ve been turning off the lights, and scolding myself for running the water excessively. Will it make a difference? I don’t know. But I find myself not wanting to be a glutten. I’m just one of 6.8 billion people on this planet earth. I need to be mindful of that every day.
