For an entire year in 2008, Dave Chameides didn't take his trash out. Instead, his basement has became his own personal landfill where he recycled and even started his own wormery - which apparently barely smelled.
A sample blogposts (from Oct. 6, Day 279 out of 365) goes:
I find Daves initiative truly inspiring - although I'm not sure my housemates would appreciate me trying taking on his challenge in our small shared flat. It does make me think about how much waste we create on a weekly basis. I does however make me keen to at least try the Zero-Waste Challenge, so stay tuned for updates about how that goes.
Does Dave's impressive project make you want to try the Zero Waste Challenge (Recycling/Collecting all your waste for an entire week)?
Are there perhaps some small tricks of Dave's we could all try at home?
