#WasteNot 30 Day Challenge: Day 2

Today is my second day of the #WasteNot challenge, sponsored by Travel Well Magazine. Here's something you've seen on the blog before: our glass milk bottles.

Living Design: Waste Not Day 1 Glass Milk Bottles

Dairy delivery is a big thing in Colorado, and the dairy we chose was already delivering to many of the homes in our neighborhood. They use all glass bottles, which we rinse out and put outside for the delivery person to take back. The bottles get reused by the dairy until they break. The only "trash" is the lid, but it's actually a recyclable plastic!

We love that by getting all dairy products in these glass bottles, we don't have lots of plastic milk jugs going into the recycling or those Tetrapaks which can't really be recycled at all.

How do you reduce your garbage? Join the challenge, and share in the comments too!
