California – A 35-year-old Berkeley catering company owner, is in the 12th month of saving all his trash.
The project started out as an experiment – to see just how much waste one person generates in a year (in Derfel’s case, about 96 cubic feet). But as the months rolled by and Derfel’s refuse overflowed from his kitchen pantry and into bins in the living room, the project grew from novelty into an environmental statement, a source of much discussion and debate, and a three-dimensional diary of Derfel’s consumption habits (not to mention a source of many, many jokes).
Sometime soon, Derfel hopes to transfer custody of the detritus to an artist who will use it to create a piece about the way Americans deal with their castoffs. Full StoryDiscount Magazine SubscriptionsDiscount Cigarettes & TobaccoNutty Nutty News Advertising
