Cutting out the trash
I saw this family on The Colbert Report that were eliminating all packaging, disposables, pretty much everything from their lives for one year. While I watched this I thought "I should try a much more moderate version of this"
I was wondering, what would you cut out of your life?

food wise I have cut alot or prepackaged crap I call it but some healthier options are more available now I just like making My own foods.
no food.. would be spending more time with family and less time online, but I love My PT family and it helps Me so much

given the type of show that the colbert report is, that is a parody, i am guessing that the segment was a joke. that being said, i have already eliminated all disposable packaging such as plastic utensils, baggies, containers. when i go out to eat, i have tupperware i can fetch if i have leftovers to pack up.

Colbert is a parody but his guests are not.

I hate unneccessary packaging. Since I've started buying more whole foods, eating out less and trying to "live simply," I've noticed quite a reduction in the amount of trash that goes out of our household. We still could cut a lot more, but we've made a start!

The better I eat (from scratch, more bulk foods) the less garbage I have. Really, the trash bin has hardly anything in it anymore.

I'm going to start bringing cloth bags when I shop at Whole Foods. I go through so many bags a week, and I've read that it helps to cause global warming.
Please go to this website for more info on global warming and how you can stop it by reducing waste.

i always use my own bags for groceries and i buy whole grains, nuts, rices, seeds in bulk and bring my own containers for them. i also buy homemade peanut butter from a local health food store and wash and reuse the same jar for that.
