rubbish free for a year!

A co-worker just sent me an awe-inspiring link. This couple spent a whole year without creating any garbage. I didn’t realize how big a deal it really is until I checked out their website.

The contents of the grocery bag they’re holding in this photo is the entirety of the trash they created in 365 days. Can you believe that? Reading through their blog made me think about the amount of waste we create in our home each day — it’s shocking. Maybe we don’t need to live “rubbish free,” but Husband and I could certainly be doing more to avoid throwing things in the trash. 

This story has inspired me to be more observant when it comes to recyclable packaging and energy-efficient products. I hope you’re feeling it, too!
