From Frog Design: Trash Talk Blog For two whole days I am collecting and carrying all my trash. Thats right, the tissues, water bottles, plates, soda cans, lollipop sticks, cupcake wrappers, etc. Thankfully, I will not be carrying my compost (because I make a lot of it) from all my cooking. That would reek. I must take it wherever I go. Be it to the movies, to Bloomingdales or to my chiropractor.
By the end of the day I will have pictures.
So far its mid-day and I have no trash! I think Saturday may be a light load.
