Garbage day makes me sad. I loathe waste – wasted food, wasted packaging, wasted money, wasted time.
I love to minimize waste by meal planning, composting, recycling, reusing and re-inventing.
There are so many small ways to reduce household waste (and even save money) – making more food from scratch; re-using jars and containers; buying second-hand clothing, toys and furniture; reusable diapers and cloths, rather than disposable diapers and wipes. Every small choice adds up – and I try to make choices that feel good for me.
