Tiny Trash Can trash diary 2020 third quarter

Third quarter of 2020

Here’s our trash for July and August. I was hoping to last three months again, but our trash can was getting pretty full thanks in part to two more broken drinking glasses 🤦🏻‍♀️ I guess we’re clumsy! 😜 Rather than replace those glasses with more secondhand drinkware, we’ve been using mason jars instead. The glass is much thicker and, so far, indestructible🤞Plus, we have a LOT of mason jars 😆

In addition to the broken glass, our trash also contains jar labels, receipts, broken rubber bands and some plastic wrapping we couldn’t avoid. Not pictured is a rug my cat decided to pee on while I was out of town 🙄 I put the carpet directly in my curbside garbage bin, which I haven’t taken to the curb this year and still has plenty of space! 🙌

I then put all my household trash in a mailing envelope I received from a friend. The built-in bubble wrap will make the broken glass safer to handle when my trash gets processed. I always keep unrecyclable bags for reuse 👍

I’d love to hear how your waste reduction efforts have been going during the pandemic. Have you found it harder or easier to shrink your trash?
