December 2017 - To Grandma's House, We Go!


Some of what went into my trash jar came from the hut trip I went on this month. Other pieces were packaging from items I ordered, or items I was given over Christmas. All in all, it was a large trash month for me, but I feel like I did pretty well for it being the holidays.

I didn't put all of the wrapping paper from gifts given to me in my jar, because they are recyclable. At my grandma's house the trash collection was specifically accepting wrapping paper for recycling for the week following Christmas. However I did have thoughtful family members who either wrapped items in re-usable packaging, or didn't wrap things at all!
