Day 5: 4 items
In addition to my daily Efferdent wrapper and eye drops container, we have a plastic cheese wrapper and plastic packaging from an HP inkjet cartridge. The HP packaging should have been included a few days ago. I added it to my plastic tally but forgot to add it to this one.
I'm so glad Oakland has an extensive composting program. Even still, I'm trying very hard to be mindful of my paper waste and use my cloth bandana as much as possible instead of paper towels or napkins. Yes, paper is biodegradable. But I think our trees are much more helpful to us as trees filtering carbon dioxide from the air than they are composting in the ground.
This Trash Challenge is helping me to be much more mindful of what I put in the garbage.
