A Years’ Worth of Trash In a Glass Jar

The first time I heard about the Zero Waste Movement I was floored that it was even possible to reduce my waste so much that a year’s worth of trash could fit into a single jar.

I understood in an abstract way that there was a trash problem and that we ought to do our part to recycle, which I did do, but I never realized I could deviate from the groove when it came to things like food–didn’t food usually have packaging and bar codes?
