It’s a little sickening how much garbage we go through. Like, nauseating. Don’t you think?
So last time we bought a package of garbage bags, we wrote the date on it…obviously…so we could track just how disgusting and wasteful we really are.
As you can see, this box of 200 bags was purchased September 4, 2010. Seems like a long time ago, right? About 17 months ago. Almost a year and a half.
I was thinking we actually did a good job…then I did the math. 200 bags divided by 17 months is 11.76…so let’s round that up to 12. 12 garbage bags in a month. Ok.
So that makes 3 bags of garbage a week. That doesn’t make me happy at all. What is all this garbage we produce? Why is there so much? I know I have a family of 4 but I was hoping 200 garbage bags would’ve lasted us longer to calm my conscience.
Ugh, we’re killing the earth. I feel totally responsible.
