Trash is a funny thing. Its disposal is something I've sorely taken for granted living in my urban world. That has come to an abrupt end.
Rather than recycling trucks and city waste management, we are now the proud owners of one rural incinerator. Nathan built this beauty. Apparently, burning things is a task he did often in the military. That sucker is efficient for sure.
One of the many things I didn't expect living on a vineyard was how this country lifestyle would change the way I shop. Packaging wasn't something I ever noticed--unless it was graphically impressive. But now I not only notice the plastic-to-compostable ratio, it is a significant factor in my purchasing decisions.
