Today hasn’t been that bad. I kept my shower under 4 minutes, I’ve been avoiding paper towels and napkins, and I’ve contributed almost no new trash to my bag. I even decided to take out one of the things I had put in there because I realized I could reuse it. Yesterday’s problem of wondering what to do with my compost is long gone, I’ve decided to freeze my food scraps and bring them to Dr. Aguilar at the end of the week for her compost pile… the best end of the semester teacher gift a student can give 🙂 This week I also decided I wanted to not eat any red meat and that’s been surprisingly easy.
All of the new waste in my trash bag are seals from new medication bottles. It is extraordinarily frustrating how wasteful the medical industry is, I’ve been trying to brainstorm ways in which preservation/sterilization can be balanced with minimizing plastic waste.
