Zero Waste Report #1

I've started to empty the contents of the trash can onto the kitchen counter every week to identify ways to reduce our impact; because we compost all our food scraps, what ends up in the trash can is mostly non-recyclable or flimsy plastic in its different manifestations. Recently Erica went shopping and didn't come home with a single plastic bag!! That practice will drastically reduce our contributions the landfill. A Zero Waste Co-op is possible, but will require us to become more conscious of what we buy and to plan ahead (bringing jars, re-using bags, etc.). Thanks for working with me, Sunwise, to make this house as close to zero waste as possible.
