Hi Amanda, I have a concern that I actually already reported to a young man’s supervisor and somehow got myself in trouble for doing it because the young man reported to my supervisor that I was harassing him and threatening him. All I did was ask him to be more careful about his water usage. He works at the Starbucks counter in St. Marys. Each time he makes a smoothee he puts the blender jar in the sink and runs the water. The water runs constantly, at times as long as a half hour. All he has to do is rinse out the container with his hand but he seems to have an aversion to getting his hands wet. Seriously. When he makes a new smoothee, the process starts all over again. When I told his supervisor, he turned off the water. When the supervisor left, the water came right back on. I honestly have not been back to the cafeteria since because it upsets me so much to see him waste water like that. He actually told me he doesn’t care and he is not in the least worried about his child’s future access to clean water. For fear of getting in more trouble, I just stay away. I have no interest in getting called out by my supervisor. However, staying away has not solved the problem. : (

Hi @solucky, thanks for sharing your experience. This is a good example of how wasteful actions can have both environmental as well as financial implications. It’s a good reminder to be mindful of how we use water, even in the land of 10,000 lakes! I’ll reach out to you offline regarding your specific experience at Saint Marys. Thanks for being an advocate for the environment.
