[Doriana] Eco-friendly Ella

Postby Doriana » Thu Apr 26, 2018 3:44 pm

Ella (H/A/F) is known among her co-workers for her eco-friendly lifestyle. However, once a week, she is the least eco-friendly person at her office. How come?

Is she less eco-friendly on that day than the other days? Is she just as eco-friendly as other days, but othes are more so? Are the same people at the office on either days?
WAG: is she the only person to work weekends, meaning the building is then being lighted and heated/cooled just for her?

Does she, on this day: cause more carbon emmissions? Use more of a finite resource? Let more of something go to waste? Cause things to be transported long distances? Use more electricity? Create more local pollution? Is air pollution relevant? Water? Ground? Pets relevant? Does she do this while at the office? While traveling to or form the office? While at home? Does this happen every week? The same day every week? Does she know she is less eco-friendly this day? Does she want to be less eco-friendly this day? Food relevant? Drink? Ozone? Does she believe she is being eco-friendly on this day as well? Is she using a specific product this day? Could her eco-unfriendliness be spread out across the week instead of being all in one day?

Is her religion relevant? Is the particular day I f the week relevant? Does she have to buy lunch from a place that’s less environmentally friendly? (Perhaps she tries to eat vegetarian as much as possible, but on Sundays the vegetarian restaurant is closed, or something like that?)

Is the ice cream manufactured in a non-eco-friendly manner? Transported? Stored? Prepared for consumption? Is it only fruit-flavored ice cream that is non-eco-friendly in this way? Or does she only like fruit-flavored ice cream? Does the money earned from the sale of the ice cream go towards non-eco-friendly activities?

Do they go for ice cream together? Is this a weekly ritual? Would she be able to be eco-friendly if she went for ice cream on her own? Do they go to where the ice cream is? Retrieve it from somewhere? Have it delivered to somewhere?

WAG: Does she normally bring her own spoon, bowl or other cutlery, but when she goes with others she's embarrassed/unable to do so and uses the disposable ones instead?

If they were to all get ice cream together any other day of the week would Ella still be the least ecologically friendly of the group?
