Unless she has a miserable life, I don't believe what is in that jar is the only trash she ever had.

The microwave in her kitchen shown in the video, for example, probably came in a box with styrofoam. That alone is more trash that what is in the jar. Where are her expired credit cards? What happens to any electronic device that stop working or is she the luckiest person in the world and has never had to replace an appliance? Did she ever have to replace the tires on her car?

Not sure if she thinks it's okay to recycle or not. She has packaging from macaroni and cheese in the jar which is easily recycleable but she considers that regular trash?

This is pretty extreme, but she is blogging about it, so will be super-diligent. As a point of reference, we fill our kitchen bin in about 3 months - mainly with unrecyclable food packaging. The rest is composted, recycled or reused (or put on Freecycle)

"The microwave in her kitchen shown in the video, for example, probably came in a box with styrofoam." Maybe it's over a year old, maybe it's second hand.

" Where are her expired credit cards?" Again, maybe they last more than a year (mine do)

"What happens to any electronic device that stop working." We can recycle ours.

"Did she ever have to replace the tires on her car? " Maybe she doesn't have a car

"Not sure if she thinks it's okay to recycle or not" Where else did it all go?

"She has packaging from macaroni and cheese in the jar which is easily recycleable" Depends on the type of plastic.

Like I say, this is extreme, but if your local council (I don't know if this responsibility would be state or county level in the USA) provides good recycling facilities, then with some simple lifestyle changes you can send a surprisingly small amount to landfill.

Oops! Just realised it's 4 years, not 1.

In which case I don't know what she's done with her expired credit cards. Maybe she turns them into novelty coke-cutters and gives them to her friends. (Which doesn't explain why she throws the straws away)
