Personal Waste Audit

I will collect all of my unrecyclable, non-compostable trash with me to raise my awareness of how much I send to the landfill.



Eat Mindfully

I will eat all of my meals without distractions, e.g., phone, computer, TV, or newspaper.

    As the challenge finally comes to a close, I am surprised by the outcome of my waste collection. At the start of the first week, I thought I would possibly fill up an entire garbage bag. However, I was able to fill it up less than halfway. I don't know if I simply just overestimated the amount of trash I produce, or maybe I thought more about each decision that would add to my waste bag. Either way, this was an interesting experience and I really enjoyed it.

    As my bag of waste grows, its starting to become more and more of a burden, and it has made me realize just how much I waste at my job. My personal trash might fill a normal plastic bag from a grocery store. With my job, however, I had to change to a 30 gallon garbage bag within a couple of days. I'm glad it isn't even close to being full.
