Day 218: Threw Waste in Garbage Instead of Toilet

Day 217: Threw Waste in Garbage Instead of Toilet

After blowing my nose in the bathroom, I threw the tissue into the wastebasket instead of the toilet.

According to the book Shift Your Habit if your home toilets are flushed four times less per day, you can, “Conserve 5,100 gallons of water or more per year. If you are concerned about this tip generating additional landfill waste, there’s no need to worry. Any solid waste that ends up at the sewage treatment plant is ultimately shipped to the landfill anyway.”

What was your simple green act for the day?

    Nice touch! Would not come up with this one, on my own, b/c I am not disposing such garbage in the bathroom, but in the regular garbage, without thinking, :)...
