Welcome to Good Little Garbage Girl, a blog in which I will learn more about garbage and do my part to share some insight into why things are the way they are (mostly bad) and how we can do better (policy change and complaining).

In this blog, I will share information about:

  • recycling

  • garbage

  • food scraps

  • waste

  • general malaise

  • depression

  • joy

  • dogs

  • the paradox of choice

  • the agony of stuff

  • dreams

  • hopes

  • things I hate

  • things I don’t love
