This was our most recent contribution to the landfill. It’s a standard sized bag. The bag was mostly full and we decided it should go out.
We have weekly trash pickup and rarely have more than one bag to put out. In the summer we will put out a half full (or less) bag because of the odour. Sometimes in the winter we don’t bother. We live fairly lightly. Much of what we buy is not elaborately packaged. (We were appalled by how abundantly packaged, and shrink wrapped, and obnoxiously clamshelled, and cardboarded, stuff in Costco is.), We don’t eat very much prepared food. Most everything is done right here in our kitchen thanks to Faye. She loves cooking, substituting ingredients, modifying recipes, trying new recipes.
Back to trash. One of these posts I will show you how much dust and dog hair our Dyson slurps up. I could knit a fourth dog from what the Dyson collects.
