The extra frugal ecologist
When signing up for garbage service, without thinking I selected the smallest garbage bin possible. We are just two people and with composting and recycling, we shouldn't generate much trash at all. Unfortunately they make garbage bins smaller than I thought possible.
Meet greenie. Note the regular size recycling bins and my legs for scale.
The space inside is even smaller, as half of the carton is taken up by the wheels and metal bar...
