Zero Waste Living

Growing up, I thought we did a pretty good job of minimizing waste. As one of nine children in a blue-collar family of modest means, we were well aware of our parent’s efforts to be as frugal as possible. Their requests to help out were always reinforced with gentle reminders of why it was important. In previous Green Living segments, I’ve written about how much of what we ate came from our garden, and Mom canned more things than I could count. Organic waste went back on the garden throughout the year, along with grass clippings and the autumn leaf “harvest”. Clothes, school supplies, and toys were shared and handed down when the time came and my siblings cycled through them. Cottage cheese containers were reused to refrigerate leftovers, and some food we didn’t consume went to our two beagles. Gift-wrapping was often the colorful comic section of newspapers, and holiday and birthday cards were reused; something we still laugh about. We always had what we needed, but the “waste not, want not” mantra was always in play.

Yet, there was always stuff that went into the garbage can or burn barrel. Back then I didn’t think about how much more we could reduce what went to the landfill. I didn’t even know where the landfill was, who owned it, or how our waste got there. Today, there is a much better awareness of the consequences of wasting resources, and how best not to. My thanks this month to our friends at One Green Planet, who have a great article on how to live a zero waste lifestyle – or, at least – come close.

Americans make up about five percent of the world’s population, yet we generate about 30 percent of the world’s garbage. We average one million pounds of materials per person a year, enough garbage to fill 63,000 garbage trucks every day. It’s delivered to over 1,908 landfills, many of which are far away from where the trash is generated. All of them will eventually be filled, necessitating the need for more. Trash that is not gathered and delivered to where it is supposed to go often ends up polluting the environment, including our water ways and oceans. Every major ocean has a trash island, comprised largely of non-biodegradable material flushed into the oceans from land.

Living a zero waste life style starts with being aware of what we use and why. Disposable water bottles, coffee cups, napkins, packaging and myriad of other things we waste are a product of our disposable society and culture and mind set. Living a zero waste lifestyle involves some forethought, commitment and a lot of inspiration. Bea Johnson, the famed Zero Waste Home blogger and zero waste guru has outlined simple steps everyone can adopt to limit their trash legacy. If everyone in America adopted only a few of these habits, we could keep thousands of tons of trash out of landfills, improve air and water quality, and save some money in the process.

Opportunities to reduce the waste going to landfills can be categorized following Bea Johnson’s recommendations. They are listed here with links to other ideas and resources.

Kitchen

Don’t use disposables – The kitchen is filled with disposable items that are responsible for a lot of waste, and we have come to rely on their convenience. Try these alternatives instead:

Buy in bulk – Disposable containers generate 13 million tons of plastic waste in the U.S. Taking a few minutes of planning before you head to the grocery store can help to eliminate that waste.

  • Bring mason jars or reusable plastic containers with lids to the grocery store to hold bulk items or food from the deli counter. Check out this expert guide to zero waste shopping from Trash is for Tossers.

  • Consider buying bulk castile soap to use as hand and dish cleaner instead of buying a bunch of little bottles of different cleaners. Castile soap has many different uses, for example, it can be used as body wash, shampoo, and tub scrub.

Don’t waste leftovers – Forty percent of all food goes to waste in the U.S. Check out these recipes from WeHateToWaste.com and learn to love your leftovers. Whatever can’t be salvaged should be composted, or, in the best case safely shared with others who do not have enough.


Closet

Shop Second Hand – Carbon Trust estimates that CO2 emissions associated with clothing account for three percent of global emissions. This number includes out-sourced production, shipping, washing, and drying. Shopping secondhand saves good clothing from a landfill and reduces the overall demand for resource intensive clothing produced off shore under what may be dubious working conditions. I have recently taken lots of clothes to Goodwill where I was pleasantly surprised to see the quality of clothing for sale, and how well the staff prepared and presented them.

Take care of clothes – Buying fewer items of higher quality will save you money in the long run. It is usually much less expensive to mend rips and tears or have clothing repaired or altered by a tailor than discarding it.


Office

Bring your lunch – According to RecycleWorks.org disposable lunches using to-go packaging, and plastic utensils generate about 100 pounds of trash per person annually. ReUseIt.com recommends these waste free lunch supplies.

Go digital – The average office worker uses two pounds of paper per day. While the paperless society anticipated by early advocates of computers has not materialized, you can take notes on your laptop and communicate with your colleague’s via e-mail rather than using paper. Notepads are one of the easiest things to make using all kinds of recycled paper.

Recycle – Unless your home or office has gone completely paper-less, chances are there are stacks of paper that could be recycled. Reusable water bottles are always the best option, and any plastic water bottles should be recycled. Introduce a recycling bin to your office. You can even make a game out of it, replete with friendly wagers, to get people involved. See Recyclebank.

Bathroom

Simplify cleaning supplies – White Vinegar and baking soda are your best friends when it comes to common cleaning needs. These all-natural alternatives to dangerous chemical cleaners are versatile, effective, and come in containers that can be recycled. Use this link for a list of zero waste alternatives bathroom supplies.

Make your own cosmetics – Save money, avoid harsh chemicals, plastic containers, and packaging by making your own cosmetics. Free People’s blog has instructions for making your own natural cheek and lip stains, perfume, shampoo, make-up remover, and more. People with chemical sensitivities or allergic reactions to commercial beauty products can use many of these homeopathic alternatives.


Other opportunities to approach zero waste lifestyle will depend on how and where you live, the support services you have nearby, and your willingness to be creative. Many farmer’s markets and grocery stores support bulk purchasing, reusable totes and the convenient return of plastic bags. I also recommend bringing the subject up at your places of worship or your children’s school, as they represent a viable end user for many things we might otherwise dispose of.

Weekly Tips

It’s all in the prep

March 23, 2015

A critical part of any painting job is proper preparation. The time, energy and investment made in materials used to prepare properly will be returned in the quality and satisfaction of a job well done. Proper preparation includes:

1. Dust and clean the walls. For most surfaces, use a slightly damp towel or vacuum cleaner. Removing film from smoking may require heavier cleaning.
2. When painting a bathroom or kitchen, wash the walls with a solution of approximately three teaspoons of laundry detergent to one gallon of water. Be sure the walls are dry before painting.
3. Scrape any cracked or flaking paint with paint scraper. Smooth small imperfections such as plaster bumps with sandpaper.
4. Fill holes, cracks or depressions with the correct compound(s) and sand flush with adjacent surfaces.
5. Protect the limits of the work with painters tape. Painters tape insures a clean edge to the painted area without effecting adjacent surfaces; a huge time saver.
6. Protect mirrors, light fixtures, and wall trim with plastic bags and tape. Carefully remove switch plates and outlet covers, and exercise caution when painting around them.
7. Always use drop cloths to protect furniture and floors.
8. Select the best primer for the application. A high-quality primer will help to hide any small wall imperfections. Use a good water-based primer on new drywall.

Taping and spackling – part of a good paint preparation

Once the prep work is completed, the painting can begin. Painting will go more quickly, the primer and paint will be used more efficiently, and you will enjoy painting without unnecessary delays, errors and distractions.
