This month our mini-challenge goal is to reduce the amount of garbage our households (or businesses) send to landfills. Up for an even bigger challenge? How can you reduce both trash and recycling? (Recycling takes energy, too.)
If you tamed the PAPER dragon last month, you already have a head start on reducing one of the biggest area of trash. If you became part of the Minneapolis organics trash pick-up program (the green garbage can), you’ve made headway in reducing one of the other big contributors to landfills.
Check out an earlier post on organizing to make recycling and composting easier. This month our household will be paying attention to packaging on things we purchase.
