Waste Reduction Week

Waste Reduction Week is celebrating its tenth year in Canada! (Ten years! One wonders why Canadians still top the charts for waste production!?!?!) 

It's still a ways off since it doesn't start until October. But I thought I would mention it now because National Zero Waste Week in the UK takes place next week. There is also a Europe-wide Waste Reduction Week happening in November; however, I was unable to find dates for the US, Australia, and New Zealand.

For ideas on how to put your trash can on a strict diet, you can check out these sites: My Zero Waste; The Rubbish Diet; Wasted Food; The Clean Bin Project; The Zero Waste Home. There is more, but these sites and blogs are a good place to start.

Of course, every week should be waste reduction week...
