A neighbor is driving to Florida for a vacation and offered me a couple of things she would otherwise throw away, the yogurt in the image. Contrast that waste with the bag behind it which contains the totality of my waste for 3 weeks.

Waste reduction is not an option for future life on our planet.

A plastic, single serve yogurt container sits on a wooden shelf in front of a small plastic bag that originally came with corn tortillas. The bag is being repurposed to collect trash and has about three weeks of waste in in it.
