saving the planet by working in the dark (day 102 | year 2)

after 9pm...

 

our building is a "green" building, which means many things, some of which are inconvenient and obnoxious, but i'm proud to work somewhere that's trying to be part of the solution. we can't open the windows, because the air flow is completely controlled to save as much energy as possible, and we can only change our thermostats up or down two degrees from the standard temp. but sometimes it's fun when the lights automatically go out at 7pm, and i do really appreciate all of the biodegradable fake plastic cups and cutlery we use (made out of corn and potatoes, i think), and the fact that we don't get bottled water - we all use regular glasses that go in the dishwasher each night.

 

and i love working on a ranch where cows and horses and baby deer and wild turkeys and bobcats and ducks and turtles somehow all manage to get along.

 

happy earth day!

 

for 365 days, flickr group roulette, and environmentally friendly.
