My name is Rob. My wife is Jess. We live in Johnson county, in northeast Kansas.

We're working on reducing the amount of trash we generate.

Nobody's perfect; there will be garbage.

Sometimes you just can't resist Taco Bell, where every item you eat contributes to the landfill.

But we can try. We've worked our way through the last of many of our disposable items, and we're evaluating all the things that end up in our trash can, even when we're out of the house.

One of these days we might come close to living a zero waste life.
