Whew! Busy week last week which not only meant I neglected my blogging duties, but also meant I wasn’t home at all to generate any trash! I’m proud to say that last week we generated only two bags of trash, and one of those bags was ‘just’ a big block o’ styrofoam packaging.
So far for week 4 our kitchen trash bag is not filling up very fast. Still have those pesky yogurt cups, blister packs for pills, a chip bag (or crisp bag for my UK readers), and yes, still a few of those blasted K-cups.
I didn’t have much of a chance to research compost last week due to aforementioned busy-ness, hoping to do a bit of that this week AND tackle this week’s Rubbish Diet Challenge: cleaning products. By the way, thanks to all who gave me compost and gardening tips. Very helpful and encouraging!
Now that we’ve eliminated paper towels, I have less waste when cleaning up. Switching to cloth rags is a great way to reduce waste. I use several Method brand cleaning products (mainly because I like the refill option for the soap). I’m sure there are more ways we can reduce our waste when cleaning up. Like getting rid of those cleaning-wipe things, and dryer sheets. Wonder what else we can reduce…
