Challenge: One bin a month or less!

Right tomorrow our Bin is going to be collected and hopefully that will be the last time that it will be collected for 1 month!

We have set ourselves a challenge of our bin being collected once a month or less. Now this is going to prove interesting as we are on a very limited budget, we have no place to store massive bulk buy items and we are a family of six with a 19 month old still in nappies!

We have be inspired by http://myzerowaste.com/ you have probably seen this wonderful family on the news on tv recently as they created only ONE bin of rubbish for a whole year!

Well we are going to do ours slowly because not only is it about not throwing things away but it is about not bringing things into the house that will eventually have to end up in Landfil! So we have to change the way we think, the way we shop and the way we bin things!
