Monday's are challengicious at The Conscious Shopper. Here's your next challenge:
Keep track of your trash for a week.
To complete this challenge, you can...
- Count the number of trash bags you fill in a week. For example, my family fills approximately 1 13-gal bag a week.
- Keep track of what you throw away. Put a notepad near your trash can, and every time you toss something in, jot down what it is.
- Dig through your trash. At the end of the week, pour out your trash bags (a plastic sheet and some rubber gloves might come in handy), take some pictures, jot down some notes, and really get hands on with your trash. This is the absolute best way to become familiar with what you're throwing away.
What's in my trash can? Come back at the end of the week to find out!
