Just wanted to share that after having 60-70 friends for our First Anniversary Potluck last Saturday, this is what we ended up with.
1. One small bag of trash, on the left.
2. Bin 1/2 full of recyclables.
3. Bag on the right full of compostable plates.
4. One stack of compostable cups.
Notice how much of this trash went to the dump.
Only the bag on the left.
We’ll bury the plates and cups in our compost piles and once they become dirt, we’ll spread them on the garden.
We sent the recycling with the recycling truck yesterday.
Just wanted you to know. And, man, it felt good only throwing away that little bit of stuff! Maybe next time, we’ll shoot for NO trash!
