Tiny Trash Can recycling less

Week’s worth of recycling

A lot of you are interested in seeing my recycling bin. Can you tell I’m not used to being in front of the camera?! 🤪 Here’s a week’s worth of recycling for my household …

My pile consists of a mailing envelope, paper that was printed on both sides (I keep the one-sided paper to reuse), plastic rings from consigned glass dairy bottles and the metal tops from cat and fish food. What you won’t find in my recycling: plastic bags, plastic packaging and glass containers. I’ve reduced the amount I recycle by shopping package-free, storing food plastic-free and refusing junk mail.

We’ve been told for decades that recycling is “good” for the environment so why am I trying to reduce my recycling? Because less is more when it comes to waste—whether it’s recyclable or not 😊
