My biggest takeaway after two weeks into my challenge is that this is a process that will take much longer than this month.
On a positive note, it will probably take the rest of the month and beyond before it’s time to take out the trash again. Our latest recycling day has also come and gone without needing to bring the can to the curb. And, all the changes I have made I believe will be easy to sustain over time, which is important
On the other hand, our household has a long way to go before I am keeping a year’s worth of trash in a mason jar.
I still have so many questions for the serious zero waste people. Do you not take medications? Do you never need to resort to getting takeout for dinner? Do you never eat olives or pretzels?
For now, I will keep researching, learning, and sharing what I learn.
