Has it been that long? Yes, it has. It's been forever. But I haven't actually been silent. I'm just blogging about books here. So mosey on over and check that out. Maybe if I have time I'll throw some things up here, but for now, it's just books.
If you are curious about how my year of trash-free eating went, the answer is: awesome. I am still buying mostly in bulk and only buying packaged food that can not be gotten unpackaged. Example: coconut oil, seaweed, miso (unless I want to drive 2 hours to a co-op that does carry it in bulk, which I don't), tempeh, etc. Not too shabby.
Trash output in this house that contains two humans, two cats, and a snake: one grocery bag a month, one small compost bucket a week.
Before you start yelling about the grocery bags, yes I do use reusable bags when I shop. These are foraged bags from work that were going to be discarded anyway. Many of them are paper.
