This last month I ended up sorting through my old filing folders and recycled the documents I no longer need. In them I also found quite a few old envelopes and some insurance cards so those got tossed in my monthly waste audit. I also finally used up the old coconut oil I had from Bramble Berry and their bags, unfortunately, can't be recycled around here. Now I buy all of my coconut oil in bulk from the People's Food Coop so that shouldn't be an issue in the future.
So for all of October, I made 6.04 ounces of landfill-bound waste. And for all of you wondering, no, I did not eat a single piece of Halloween candy and instead made peanut butter cookies to munch on!
Let's break down exactly what was in my waste jar this last month:
bramble berry coconut oil bag
spaghetti pasta package
remote powerpoint clicker package
anniversary card plastic cover
cheese pizza wrapper
THINX shipping label + mailer
light bulb packaging
health insurance cards
ripple milk seal
shampoo bar package
random bits of plastic
What was in your waste this month? What are you working on reducing?
