Throughout this week we will be working on throwing out as little as possible. It is interesting how once you become aware of everything we ‘waste’, alternative solutions begin to present themselves.
What creative or interesting alternatives have you come up with?
Trash is a very visible form of consumption. We can see not only what we throw out during the week, but also what our neighbors get rid of. If we wanted to, we could even go to the landfill and see what our entire community disposes of. Being able to gauge the physical trash you dispose of is comparable easy to gauging other things we consume, such as water and energy. Therefore, it is one of the easier things to reduce.
