A look at a zero-waste household


This is inspiring to see someone actually accomplishing this.

My family also tries to reduce the waste we throw away. We accomplish not throwing much in the trash...most of what we do end up throwing away is used cat litter, degradable sacks, and fat/gristle from meat trimming. Veg/fruit/non-meat goes into a compost bin, and grass clippings are reused as mulch. Beer and wine bottles get reused when we make more. We do tend to have a lot of plastic, cardboard, and paper waste though...which we take to a recycling center. But it would be good to see that diminish as well.

Any suggestions of things that work well for your household?
