Project Green Foot: Week 10

This week we had friends that came to visit us in Fort Worth. Therefore, we went out to eat more often then I would have liked.  I think the one thing we need to work on is going out for dinner, and limit it to only once a week.

When it came to groceries, we used what we had in the house. We actually only picked up some food at Central Market on Saturday afternoon for the coming week. On Tuesday, I will be picking up our veggie/fruit basket. My fingers are crossed that we do not receive any pumpkins or squash. We are all pumpkined and squashed out.

We signed little E up for “The Little Gym” once a week on Mondays. We actually had to pay the full amount until June. However, we will not be in Fort Worth until June- they reimburse the difference.

2-COMPOSTING

I didn’t juice as much as I usually do during the week. Therefore, our total weight of our compost was 7.6 lbs which is not as much as a typical week for us.I will be off this week to drop off our 2 bins!

3-RECYCLING

We actually didn’t have very much recycling this week.

4-TRASH

The trash had the usual suspects: fruit/veggie stickers, plastic banana wrap, receipts, tie wrap from the lettuce, elastics from the fresh herbs and plastic from Kombucha.

5-TRAVEL

We still have not filled up our gas tank and we have approximately one-quarter of a tank left. I love my diesel! The total kilometers was 101.6 (63.1 mi). Pretty good.

Do you think you would be able to go one week waste-free?

How do you like your diesel? Maybe my next car will be diesel….I’m almost in the market. Keep up the good work!
