The New Year is almost here so I thought I would finally put this picture up. This is my “trash” jar from the past two years. It contains all of the items that I cannot recycle or compost.

Why am I holding onto them? 

Because I am hoping one day I can find a way to recycle/upcycle them. The last time I went through this jar I realized that a large portion of the plastic that was in there was recyclable! 

If you have any creative reuse ideas or know how I can recycle plastic straws, produce stickers, plastic clothing tags, please let me know!

  1. Almost everything. I need to be so much more aware of this. Thank you for bringing this topic up. I make an effort to keep my waste down. I recycle but everything just has way to much packaging. I'll get things and it will be full of the dreaded peanuts as well. It's awful. I can't bring myself to throw them away and I don't know if they are recyclable. The worst is when it's from an ecofriendly company.
