For Earth-day I decided to keep all the trash with me throughout the day to see what I use and where I can improve. I was surprised I had as much as I did, but also surprised how much was recyclable (See graphic). My hat is off to Phoenix for how much they take as recycling.
Other surprises: I paused as I reached for the paper towel to dry my hands in the restroom. The K-cups were obviously not recyclable as I was sipping the coffee. (Do they make a single serve tea-bag style coffee bag?)
Very easy exercise. I encourage anyone to try it for a day.
