Oregon Couple Completes a Waste-Free Year
How did they manage to curb their wastefulness? The Korsts bought only recyclable products, legally burned organic material, kept a backyard compost bin, and grew their own produce, among other actions. Though the project is officially over, the Korsts aren’t stopping at 365 days, according to the duo's blog.
Forced to research and learn by trial and error the best and easiest ways to reduce their trash output, the couple hoped this 12-month mission would answer their questions about often contradictory waste-reduction tips. To learn how to cut down on your landfill contribution, check out the Korsts’ site, where Amy and Adam share what they learned along their waste-free journey, and provide a little inspiration.
