This is what I couldn't recycle, re-purpose, repair, compost or refuse in the first place.
I only wish I had been able to make my goal of only six jars. But a late September car accident and simultaneously taking care of a friend who was recovering at my house from abdominal surgery meant a return to pre-packaged foods and those foods come with lots of single-use plastic.
It is funny how your perceptions change when doing #zero #waste #challenges like this one. The world looks at this and goes "Only NINE jars of trash for a year? Holy smokes!" But I go "Damn! I failed! I am a screw-up who makes too much garbage!"
How do you reduce waste in your household? What are your challenges?
