Growing up, I recycled newspapers but in the past few years, I've seen the benefits of eating organic. I wanted to learn more so when the opportunity came up to join Sustainable Works at my school, I jumped on it (plus there's extra credit). So a few meetings into it, I realize that everything takes a lot of resources. According to them, making one burger takes gallons of water, people should not flush when the bowl is waste-free, etc, etc. Sometimes it seems like to goals exercised in these groups seem unlikely to make a difference but I know I feel better when I give clothes away instead of trashing them. How about you? What do you or your family do on a regular basis? Does it make a difference?
