A couple of days ago I had a layover at Chicago O’Hare. I got some Chinese lunch at one of the food courts: rice, spicy tofu and potato chicken. For a quick bite between flights, it’s very filling and quite tasty. I asked for a cup of water to go with the. The meal cost $8.27.
When I was done, I realized that I had spent perhaps 20 minutes eating. I used three paper napkins (which I was given), a plastic fork, a styrofoam food container with cover (like they give out in restaurants for left-overs) and a styrofoam cup for the water.
I created a lot of waste for the landfill. I used up lot of petroleum and paper products.
Just to have one meal.
