Zero Waste Life
Let me start by saying I am nowhere near living a zero waste life. I am actually embarrassed by the amount of trash we produce (both personally, and as a society), but I am doing my best to reduce the amount of waste by paying attention to the things the products I buy are packaged in, buying in bulk where possible, and reducing, reusing and recycling always. I don’t know I’ll ever get to the point where Lauren Singer is — making all my own products — but just buying less is an awesome start.
According to Singer, the average American produces 4.4 lbs. of trash per day! I think I can at least do better than that. I think we all can.
So – whatever you can do to make your footprint less, then go for it! You may not get to zero, but you’ll feel better across all spectrums.
Today is Day 26 of the #AtoZ blogapalooza. Finito! We made it, baby.
