Trash Diary 2/7/11

Oops – crazy schedule and didn’t factor in blogging time. Needless to say there was trash generated.

Here’s what I trashed today:

Trash –
Two paper coffee cups and lids (one because I forgot the reusable, the second was while waiting for a meeting to start that was WAY late in starting.)
Plastic baggie
Plastic bottle (yes, a redeemable, recyclable one because I didn’t have room in my bag to carry it! Not a good excuse).

Recycled –
Cardboard sleeve (from one of the coffee cups)
Paper bag
Foil wrap

Saved –
Napkins (using the cloth napkin at work now)
Paper towels (hand dryer in public restroom)
Plastic bag (from plastic bottled beverage purchase)
