Earth Day Challenge: Day 4

Possibly, just possibly running out of steam--today, because I didn't check to see how many cups Einstein's gave me when I picked up the buckets-o'-coffee for the Writing and Social Justice Conference, and because they gave me what seemed like an inadequate number of cups, I had to run over to a convenience store and get extra styrofoam cups. In my car. And I went to Target. And I forgot to use my reusable shopping bag. I'm blaming it on the hot dusty wind which, as I'm sure you know, makes people lose their rational minds and want to kill each other. I don't want to kill anyone, but I sure did do some earth-unfriendly things today. And it's not even 6 p.m. yet!

However, I did consciously do an earth-friendly thing, and that was to unplug my cell-phone charger when I wasn't actually using it to charge my cell-phone. Sometimes I do this and sometimes I do not. But I want to make this more of a thing I do all the time.

Are we really supposed to do this? Does it use that much electricity? My consumer self needs evidence! And I would probably, unthinkingly, plug in my phone in an unplugged phone charger and wind up broken down on I-15 with a dead phone. I suck.
