We, the Juniper dorm at Lewis and Clark College, are trying to go for 2 weeks without producing any "waste," which includes anything that is not recyclable or compostable.

FOUR CHEESE BITCH!
After a "deep" discussion Miriam and I realized that this whole project makes us think about our decision-making! For instance, two days ago I was making some quesadillas and finished the cheese. "Crap," I thought, "What do I do now?" So after much contemplation I came to a conclusion to make a pencil pouch out of the four cheese Mexican ziplock bag! So much better than throwing it away, right? Then, today I really wanted to get some reese's eggs (they only come around during Easter), but, Chloe, my smart and awesome roommate, asked me what I would do with the wrappers. Instantly I put down the delicacies and proceeded out of the store.
I love this project. Not only am I making better decisions that will be beneficial to the environment but also I am making better choices that will benefit my health. :)
