A Week's Worth of Trash
Dave Chameides is worried about waste. So he has been saving all his trash this year. In his basement.
Dave's project was personal - he wanted to learn how he could cut down on stuff that ends up in the landfill, or worse. But it's also public. He's kept a blog of his experiences. It's called 365 Day of Trash.
Now that he's nearing the end of his experiment, he's inviting others to try it. Not for a year. Just for a week. All the details are at his blog, and if you try it, comment on your experiences here.
Oh, and Dave has a year's worth of recycling and waste minimization tips, including things you can do with, oh, hair that you trim off your head.
Here's a video of Dave Chameides showing off the handy stuff he keeps in his backpack - all things designed to lower his garbage footprint.
