Trash talking

During the first month, I also used

  • 1 Trader Joe’s paper bag worth of glass
  • 1 Trader Joe’s paper bag worth of paper
  • 1 aluminum can
  • 1 Ikea shopping bag worth of plastic
  • 1 small trash bag (5 gallon) of garbage or container that didn’t have the recycle sign on them.

My goal for October is to cut down on packaging surrounding our food, since it all gets disposed of anyway. By visiting farmer’s markets, and bringing my own reusable shopping bags to transport food, I plan on cutting this in half.
