I took the train into the Chicago today for Worldwide Knit In Public Day (no I’m not kidding). There were seven us from all over the Chicagoland area, so we really cut down our emissions by joining other Chicagoans riding the train for a variety of fun city events.
I do have to report that in our efforts not to go hungry, we accumulated a bunch of trash from picking up some lunch at Corner Bakery and not having any recycling bins in Millennium Park. I tossed three very full plastic (gasp!) bags into the trash bin because we were all so weighted down already, that we didn’t know what else to do. Carrying all that back home just didn’t seem like a great idea. So my one green thing for the day sort of neutralizes the not so great thing. I did remember to bring and use my bamboo cutlery and not use the plasticwear the restuarant provided.
