Trash Diary 1/4/11

Only day 6 of the trash diary and I’m thinking, ‘what did I get myself into?!’ But I intend to keep this New Year’s Resolution, so here goes:

Trash:
napkins
paper towels (at work and at home)
tissues (although less tissues now that cold is nearly gone!)
small plastic tub and lid
plastic yogurt container
kitty little/plastic bag combo (gotta keep the kitties clean!)

Recycled:
Paper board food box
foil top from yogurt container
foil from leftover lunch

Saved:
Paper cup
Plastic bag and plastic fork (believe me, not that easy with the folks at the market/deli – they really want me to have these things)
