Reducing our Trash – A Visual Guide

One of the most daunting issues facing the world today is the mounting waste problem. Because we’re not seeing it, we think it’s not a problem, but it is. In Massachusetts we create so much trash that much of our waste is transported out-of-state sometimes as far as Ohio, at great cost to us, the rest is sent to landfills or incinerators in the State.

This visual guide shows alternatives I have implemented in my household to reduce the amount of stuff we send to the landfill.

Update Oct 2017: I am no longer using Preserve products due to the low quality/design of their products. Instead I am using regular toothbrushes and re-usable razors with disposable blades.
