We've decided that with the help of our new composter and our city's fantastic recycling program that we can reduce our garbage signifigantly! We are hoping to get our total garbage down to 1 kitchen sized bag per week, that's a 38L bag of garbage.
Our composter will help, and we've purchased another recycling bin!
I just don't believe we need to make this much garbage and I think there's a lot of you who are with me!
It's going to take a lot more then just a new recycling bin and a composter. We're going to have to start looking at what we're buying and start purchasing products with less packaging. Less plastic, more cardboard and maybe instead of buying pudding cups, we could buy pudding mix, changes like that.
I think something we've lost is the belief that we can change big business, let's show companies that less packaging is what we want! (there is no reason for toothpaste to come in a cardboard box, it's in a tube people) hehe
Join us in making the pledge to reduce your waste. It doesn't have to be 1 bag a week, it can be whatever you feel you can do!
So grab a button, and let us know!
