Trash Audit December 2017

January 7, 2018

It's the last month of the year which means it's the last trash jar of the year! This month was quite colorful if you take a look at the picture! And unfortunately I made some silly mistakes that ended up in bandaids and straws being wasted. However, I rounded out the year with a total of 1.67 pounds of trash for all 12 months! Obviously this does not represent my entire impact on the planet especially because this is only my household waste (not medical or industrial). But compared to the approximately 1,000 pounds each U.S. citizen produces in their homes, I'm feeling pretty happy with my progress!
