TRASH IS TRAGIC
I decided to stop making trash in 2013. Striving for "zero waste", my partner and I contribute almost nothing to landfills, and very little to recycling plants. That means no plastic bottles, no paper towels, no nothin' designed for single use. We re-use or compost most of our discards. The goal is to break free from wasteful habits and end our consumption of plastics. The outcomes include simplicity, health, organization, creativity, never dealing with stink-ass trash.
I offer practical tips for zero waste living in my monthly column, Trash is Tragic. It appears online in the Boston Hassle, with a special blurb in the Counter Culture Compass print edition.
