I almost forgot this riveting installment… Oh, how you would have missed it! (Seriously, there was a bolt upright moment when I realised, and I scurried back to the kitchen to snap some photos). For anyone new to this, I like to weigh my non recyclable waste every Wednesday. One day, I hope to have zero non recyclable waste. That’s the aim! I do the kitchen bin weekly, and the bathroom and bedroom bin when they get full. For more details, see the Zero Waste page.
Blurry picture at 6.30am, sorry, but that’s 239g. Adjusted (as this is two week’s trash) total is 67g.
That is a RECORD! I’ve never had it that low since I started weighing weekly in April.
It’s weird, cause I was sure the yucky bacon packet would take me over.
Oh and for people who remember all my cheese grating efforts (to lessen waste), here’s some photos of what happened when the BF’s fridge was emptied into mine this past weekend:
And to think, this was after I consolidated all his half packets into one package, where possible. If there’s one thing I teach the BF, it’ll be to ‘use it up’ when there’s just dregs in the packet… I mean, who couldn’t handle one more sprinkle of cheese to empty the packet?
So, that brings us to… the best week yet, but some bad weeks anticipated in the new future. Any tips on how to keep the BF on board with my waste minimisation targets?
