Yesterday I went with a few friends to a state park we frequent. Having spent part of my professional career (as a shovel monkey) tromping through woods that aren't really hiking-friendly with a ton of heavy gear (and occasionally breaking for lunch too close to nests of ground bees), marked trails and picnic tables amuse me.

Unfortunately I hadn't been up there in a while, and not since reading too many books on the subject and becoming hyper-aware of the garbage and plastic problem. Which you get a lot of in a busy hiking area on a nice day in June.

Note to self: Bring garbage bags next time to pick stuff up with. Or at least take pictures of the Coors can that was at the bottom of this particular waterfall.

One of my 2012 New Years Resolutions was to make an effort to be Zero Waste, and eliminate disposable products from my life.

As most resolutions go, that lasted about a week. Maybe two. But what I did do was start writing down everything that was disposable that I threw away or recycled (while I know most green bloggers go ahead and just save it all to take pics of later, I didn't think the people I lived with would be appreciative of that). Thanks to the word cloud in the program I used, it became evident super quickly that my main problems were yogurt cups and granola bar wrappers from my work snacks and lunches. Also plastic tea bag wrappers. But I digress.

Anyway, that's why I'm here. Let's talk about this shit, shall we?
