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.
