Hi, my name is Denise. My hobby is developing a zero-waste home life for apartment dwellers. I am not at “zero” yet, but I am tackling one regular household material at a time.
I think I have Styrofoam covered. My main incoming is in the form of egg cartons and meat packaging. I live alone, so it is about 2 egg cartons and maybe 3 of those rectangular plates that contain food per month.
My habit is to cut them into strips and then snip into small pieces in one sitting after I do my shopping. They have a nice futon-like feel to them in a cushion. I think my average production rate will provide enough for one futon or a couple of those lean-to pillows or one of those nest-style dog beds each year.
