    I am noticing that other than dog pee training and dog food. My major waste creator is quick and easy food and beverages. If I choose to snack on chips and similar snacky foods and drink pop, mineral water, etc. That is where my waste is coming from. Take out bags and containers too. When I cook at home, eat and drink healthier, my waste decreases significantly. But I am also cleaning out old papers and materials from work and that has also lead to a lot of recycling waste. How can I reduce word related waste? And I need to work on changing my diet. There are  lower or zero waste stress foods. (:
