Day 21: Track Your Trash Habits
"We must realize that when basic needs have been met, human development is primarily about being more, not having more." -The Earth Charter
Carry your trash in a clear plastic bag with you throughout the day. Later that evening, sort it as landfill waste, recyclable, or compostable.
Is there one particular type of trash you accumulated more of, i.e. landfill, recyclable, or compost? What can you do to reduce both your landfill and overall waste? Learn more about the process of trash disposal. Watch The Story of Stuff to learn more about consumption. What happens after you throw away that wrapper or recycle those papers?
