Challenge Yourself to Waste Less

July 18, 2011 No time like the present to change some old habits into ones that not only are beneficial to you, but ultimately to the planet as well. GOOD magazine is holding a 30-day challenge this month and it is one we all can participate in each and every day: Waste Less.

“…the average American produces about 4.4 pounds of garbage per day, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, and in Mexico, households create 30 percent more trash than Americans. It all seems insignificant at first—a Starbucks cup here, a sandwich box there—but pretty soon you’re sweating while hauling giant Hefty bags to the curb yet another week in a row. Let’s stop being so trashy, and let’s start this month.”
