No Trash Week: October 7 - October 13


No Trash Week starts today! Celebrate this week-long event by not creating any waste. Sound like a tall order? Eh, kinda, but with tips for dealing with the packaging, plastic and paper you encounter every day, projects to help you prepare -- like composting, buying in bulk and stopping junk mail -- and a forum to help hash out your questions, issues and difficulties with cutting the trash out of your life, you can get a lot closer than you might think.

The Seattle-based organizers of the event do recognize the inherent difficulties with going zero waste -- "The way our society is currently structured makes it very difficult for any individual to produce zero garbage." -- so they recommend setting a tough but reasonable goal and going for it. Leave your ideas and experiences in the forum, and good luck! ::No Trash Week via ::Hugg
