Trying to Devour My Climate Anxiety

Even though I’ve learned I can’t always consume everything, it doesn’t stop me from trying.

At home, I can reduce and compost food waste to minimize my worry, but in most public spaces Ive found composting isnt an available option. I find pride in this habit even though it’s illogical, maybe even a little inconsiderate. It forces those around me to recognize what they’re wasting, and that’s not exactly polite conversation. Kelsey has patiently pointed out the irrationality of this routine several times, but it’s hard for me to stop cold turkey, because my anxiety is assuaged whenever I prevent food from getting tossed at the end of a meal.

You’re still eating those avocados though

fuck you
