I’ve plotted my amount of waste over the last week (trying to understand what I was buying and what I was throwing away)
All of my consumption this week happened at school, (I guess It shows how much time I spend here!) but almost 100% of it was food. That adds up to over 20 pounds!
I also traced out what kind of waste I was producing. Glass came up as the highest percentage in weight, however, this statistic is deceiving, considering I only threw out 2 glass bottles. In reality, plastic and non-recyclables made up the majority of my waste output.
The major realization here is seeing how much energy (food) we need to survive . Considering that I mostly consumed food, my input to output ratio is 8.75:1.
