earlier today we talked about how little waste we produce, a fact brought into sharp focus when we had food delivered last night. the restaurant was good to ask in advance if we needed silverware and napkins--i said no--but the additional paper products were unavoidable. our little garbage can--a re-used plastic gallon pot from a nursery--was pushed to half-full capacity with one meal. we typically empty our garbage every other week, and this one meal likely changed our routine. between using biobags, composting, and no paper products (toilet paper is all we use), our garbage production is pretty slim. i imagine this experience will influence future delivery decisions, which means less laziness. drat!
