Thursday night class

Class Thursday night was helpful as we learned how to submit homework on blackboard.  We also learned to not only look at the syllabus but another document that listed each week’s assignments.  Thank Goodness! There is so much homework when taking two classes and trying to find a job at the same time, you definitely need to have clear documentation to keep up with it all.

I am learning so much about the waste industry and there is so much work that needs to be done in Zero Waste. I like hearing Kimberly’s experiences and everyone in the class is asking great questions that leads to answers that give us more insight about the industry.

I also like reading the book “Cradle to Cradle”.  First the book itself is made from synthetic paper not from wood pulp or paper fiber. The authors are not only writing about the environment, they are working in it and showing us what can be done to help the environment. The authors make us aware of the things we have and what they are made out of. They state that even choosing something like carpeting that is made from recycled materials, the material was not designed to be something else.  So will it be safe, is it really helping the environment and you? I will look forward to reading more and finding out.
