In the email below, Kathleen is referring to the idea of using 5 gallon buckets to collect trash vs. plastic bags. She also suggests bucket containers that you buy kitty litter in---another great idea for re-use. I will be using a reusable bag or a bucket---not sure which yet. For the sake of comparing our data to 2009 and 2010, I will convert all info in terms of grocery store sized plastic bags.
I think the blog site looks great. I love the fish and the overall look is clean and neat (KIC, man!!)
I love the idea of the 5 gallon bucket. Something else that might work are the hard plastic kitty litter containers.
In zone 0 this morning Morgan and I picked up 2.5 grocery store bags of trash. These contained mostly beer bottles (I would say about 16 or so), several beer cans, 2 water bottles, 4 dorito type snack bags, 1 mylar ballon with string (I always think it's such a score to pick up a balloon), several straws and noticibly FEW cigarette butts (I'd say we only picked up 5 or so).
Hope to see you soon!
