Self Intervention 1- Olivia Hansel

Unfortunately I started off strong with our intervention then kept forgetting throughout the week. This is most of my trash from my longest run of 4 days straight. I was shocked at how much plastic is wasted on food products that could otherwise be bought without packaging. I started to be more conscious of the food I eat and how much of it I can start to make myself to avoid packaging or substitute with something that has less packaging. I was definitely taken aback by how much non decomposable items add up. This intervention has showed me that the small things add up and making change doesn’t have to come with reinventing my whole life I just need to start being more mindful of small decisions.
