My husband looked over at me the other day and said, “Two years ago if you’d told me I’d be washing trash, I would have called you crazy.”
Ah, but look at the crazies now.

Just fish packaging, really. But we discovered how to beat that!
I’m most surprised by how much packaging we use, especially with food. We compost almost all food waste and paper. We recycle everything else, but the small amount of trash we generate is plastic from packaged foods that cannot be recycled. Not in this area, anyway.
Trash for the week....granola wrapper, cereal liner, dental floss case, bacon packaging
