I stumbled across this wonderful blog today called 365 Days of Trash.
1. If something is waste that I have generated, I’ve got to deal with it. If I buy something for myself, the packaging is mine to deal with. Hopefully this will entail figuring out what it is made of, what would happen to it if it were thrown away and what I will be doing with it.2. Any waste that I generate that can be recycled, will also be saved. Recycling is better than throwing away but it still takes energy and creates waste so I think accounting for recycling will be an important factor.
