this check-in doesn't have to take long. really i could just look into the trash can as my report card. i like to look a little deeper, so i think in terms of rooms and consult bea's book to remind me of all the areas in which i need to look. in the kitchen, i look in all the cupboards to see each and every item i'm keeping and to reassess its necessity. the less i have the easier this is. i look around the room to see each thing on the walls and in the fridge with new eyes. a clean slate is zero-waste at work.
as i move from room to room, i see my space again. i create space and tidy and edit and remove. it makes me feel fresh and at peace and ready to move into this next season of school and a little faster pace.
this week i'll let you in on my process and progress in zero-waste. i'll be honest and open about my failures and allowances too. i'm not about perfection... but i am about progress. it's fun and i'm learning more about my relationship to material things, the nature of creation and my created being. i'm ready to dive deeper and do better.
if you are new to this zero-waste thing or open to a refresher, this ted talk = zero-waste in 14 minutes flat... a more in depth hour long talk here. refuse, reduce, reuse, recycle, rot. bam.
