The Carnival of Trash

Welcome to the February 11, 2009 edition of Carnival of Trash.

It's that time of the month where everyone gets the opportunity to share their thoughts on the world's garbage. You'll find the bloggers here are from all walks of life, with a different take on all aspects of society's rubbish. This month has a particular American flavour and includes a more contoversial submission that debates the environmental impact on nappies, or diapers as they say on the other side of the Atlantic.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed to this month's carnival. Just keep the trash-talk going and hope to see you again next month. For everyone else, just sit back, enjoy the read and please remember to leave some feedback for all those who kindly sent in their submissions.


Ray K presents How Starting A Backyard Compost Can Save You Money posted at, saying, "My blog focuses on money saving and time saving ideas and tips for everyday living. We also do a few product reviews and movie reviews. As my site is relatively new, any advice or insight you can provide me would be appreciated.


Myscha Theriault presents The Plastic Bag Dilemma: Seven Strategies for Coping | Wise Bread posted at Wise Bread, saying, "Tip list for using up those plastic bags."

Cindy presents Free Recycled Valentine?s Bag Pattern posted at My Recycled, saying, "In honor of Valentine's day, here is a fun and easy craft project that uses recycled plastic bags. The bags are cut into strips to create plarn (plastic bag yarn) and then are crocheted. This little Valentine's heart bag is perfect for holding Valentine cards or candy. The pattern is free at my blog."

Praveen presents Alternative to Throwing Your Cell Phone in A Landfill posted at Tao of Simplicity.

Ahhhh, I need a secretary; I completely forgot about the carnival :(
I remembered about the carnival of the green, so perhaps my brain cell only allows me to remember one thing a week LOL!

Still, there are some great posts here and I shall enjoy having a browse around the blogosphere. Thanks for creating and hosting this great event Mrs A :)

Hi Mrs A,

Great to see other perspectives in the Zero Waste world. It is still early in the year so hopefully in the better weather we will see more activity


LOL Mrs G - I would have reminded you but my brain was rather occupied too, hence forgetting to submit one of my own posts. I only just remembered to publish it thanks to the automatic reminder. Phew, I would have hated to have let everyone down. Folks don't forget to submit your posts for next month. Do it now before the excitement overwhelms you :-D x

Hi John - it's true. Lots of people are doing their bit and what's great is that each month, different contributors pass through with their excellent ideas. :-D

Oh! I missed the deadline again!

Okay, I have just added the Carnival's RSS feed to my Yahoo Alerts. Will it tell me when you've posted the next host?


Hi Beth - Don't worry I'll let you know about the next host and will try and organise myself to do a reminder x
