I’ve recently decided it was time to admit to myself that I’m keeping trash. Since I discovered the concept of zero-waste, I started hanging on to a bunch of different things that I wanted to find a way to reuse. As I’ve been working on my 2012 in 2012 and getting started on spring cleaning, I came to the conclusion that just because I keep it, doesn’t mean it’s not trash. So, out, trash I say!
For example, two baking sheets that I have had since long before I knew about using inert and safe cooking materials. Their coatings were scrubbed off, they have black marks all over them and I think I even spied some rust. I now use glass, so these baking sheets sit in the cabinet taking up space and never get used.
This weekend I’m going to try and figure out if I can recycle any of the stuff and then I’ll post my first (long overdue) 2012 tally. It’s been going very well so far.
Do you have trash like this or is it just me?
