This man, Dave Chameides, collected all of his trash for a year in his very tiny basement. And lo and behold, it is now part of a museum collection. He worked very hard to minimize his personal waste. And it’s impressive and a bit sobering to realize that I’m not going to be creating that little amount of waste.
It also seems that Dave must not have cats. For cat litter is my biggest amount of waste that my household produces. And I tried using kitty litter years ago that was rabbit pellets but my cats just ended up peeing on the furniture in rebellion. Turned out that the pellets hurt their paws. So, at least I tried.
I salute Dave and his educational attempts here. We do have a long ways to go, still.
