What I learned - composters are awesome. With recycling and composting, we've had the same garbage now for almost 3 weeks, well this Friday it will be 3 weeks filled with stuff that cannot be reused, recycled or composted.
I love my Starbucks cup and reuse it and bring it everywhere I go. It is wonderful to not have to worry about recycling the lids!
And here is what I'm keeping for sandwich bags, and to pack toiletries in for trips-
So there's not that much that we're throwing away, although I'd rather it be nothing!
Changes from this Experience -
1- we now compost!
2- Before I make purchases I look to see if the plastic is recycleable, and if its not, I either don't buy that one or make sure I can reuse it somehow.
3- I now bake my own bread and I use my old bread bags!
Baking the bread was surprisingly so easy! Just needed butter, milk, I used organic wheat flour, active dry yeast & alittle sugar! It was pretty neat to watch it rise!
Thank you so much for visiting for my Final Earth Day Recap! (I was up late baking last night, please excuse the bags under my eyes lol)-Nikki
