Putting Waste on a Diet details Karen Klage's work to reduce the amount of trash that comes from her household. She worked with Lydia Duyawa-Dow, a waste/recycling consultant. Her starting stats: an average of 1.6 pounds a day, 11.22 pounds a week, not including the 18.36 pounds of newspapers she recycles and the catalogs she receives. The article tracks her strategies to losing some of that weight, a process she has found addictive; we found it full of good, basic ideas and info. Also from H&G this week: Five Things: to remove from your bedroom for a better night's sleep from the author of "Home Enlightenment", Annie Bond. Screen Grabs: "The yin-yang balance of form and function" of the classic Eames management chair gets it featured. The Greening of Grillng: via the NYT, a piece on grilling, its effects on the environment and what you can do to make it greener. Reader Question: A low voc seal for a granite countertop?
