Trash Diary 1/2/11

Day 2 of 2011 and I’m still keeping up on my new year’s resolution.

Trash:
Paper towels
Tissues
Napkins (I see a trend already with the paper towels, napkins, and tissues…)
Food scraps from breakfast
plastic bags from deli counter cold cuts
big plastic bag of kitty litter (used a kitchen garbage bag to change out whole box)

Recycled:
Paper board food box
tin can (rinsed)
glass and plastic bottles, aluminum cans (redeemed for $4.95)

Saved:
2 plastic bags (bag declined at register for 2 different store purchases)
