Well, yesterday was the 3rd to last weighing day for our Challenge. How is everyone doing?
We have managed to our garbage down pretty low for a family of 6 – check it ou!
I have asked Metro Van if they can make available all of our stats so that everyone can have a look at their data to ensure it has been entered accurately, and to give us some more incentive to see if we can get our weights down a little more during these last two weeks.
Here is a photo of what has been deposited so far on the eco shed on my porch. As you can see, there is a lot of styrofoam and polystyrene containers. The purpose of the eco shed is to allow us to recycle items that are recyclable, but not accepted in the blue box or at the city depot; to see if we would go to the trouble of taking them out of our garbage if there were a convenient place to take them. Bring me your styrofoam/polystyrene, #3. #6, & #7, and hard plastics (#’s 1, 2, 4 & 5 can go in your blue bin). So please continue to make your deposits here (I will remove the full bags and put them into my garage until the end of the Challenge, and then take the final load somewhere…).
Good luck everyone!
