So far, there's not a lot of trash data for me to report. Yesterday I used six paper towels, 1 coffee stirrer, and dental floss. (Thanks for the coffee-stirrer tip, Meghan!)
And today, I've used only two paper towels. That's it. Really. And the only reason why my paper-towel usage has declined today is because I worked from home this morning, so I used a cloth towel for drying my hands.
Ho hum, these data are not compelling. (I know, I know, I should probably be rejoicing for not generating a lot of waste!)
But I was confronted with a challenge last night when I went out to dinner. I was determined to eat everything on my plate--I didn't want to stow uneaten food in my bag, nor did I want to carry a styrofoam container after I was done with my leftovers. With that in mind, I ordered curry fries and a steak salad. Not bad, though with the size of food portions these days, I was quite stuffed afterwards. In fact, when I woke up this morning, I was still full from last night's meal!
