    Today only waste I made was the plastic bag inside a  box of Triscuits!  Recycled the box, composted food scraps, used reusable water bottle.

    Yesterday at the pub I got my friend to help dig all the cans out of the trash and recycle them. :)

    I built a volunteer network for the UAF FreeStore, a free swap site where people can donate things they don't need and take what they do for free. Also created two flyers and scheduled a mending workshop to teach people how to fix things instead of throwing them away.
