I just heard a piece on CBC Radio One about Tippi Thole and her TinyTrashcan.com site, where she shares how to decrease your waste.  

I love her site – so many resources for me to use to find ways to decrease our household waste.  We already compost and recycle, but reducing our dependence on plastics when we shop for groceries.

There are many options on TinyTrashcan.com, including reusable produce bags, beeswax wraps to replace plastic cling wrap and DIY household cleaners.
