My self-intervention was pretty informational. I learned a lot from trying to not use waste for a week. I realized not only that it is possible to live for that long using minimal things (if not anything at all) BUT that it would be very hard for the average person to get on board with something like this. Without thinking about it, no one would ever realize how much they use in a week. With my efforts, I reduced my use down to about 3/4’s of a trash can full of garbage.
