More waste and hopefully, more solutions.
Bag from packet pf pastry mix. I never use pastry mix but my mum gave this to me before she went away, so I used it to make an apple tart. Not something I would buy myself, so not of major concern for my bin.
Greaseproof for greasing tart tin. Maybe I should get a pastry brush instead? I tried to just use my fingers, and it was a little disastrous.
Wrapper from pot plant. This was a (very kind and thoughtful and happily received) gift. I will try not to get pot plants with plastic wrappers as I am thinking of having a few around the house.
Bag from baking weights. It kept opening and spilling them everywhere, so I popped them in a tupperware. This is a one-off.
Match. Hm. Any better ideas on how to light candles?
A zipper that broke in the sewing process. I sliced it with the unpicker. Damn. Hopefully a one-off too.
Foil from a cake for my birthday. This was also a gift. I guess we could pick the cakes without foil next time.
My friend's leftovers. Again - is there some way I can compost dairy etc.?
Leftovers from dinner party. We had takeaway, which is rare for me. I recycled most of the containers. Champagne was a gift too, but I guess until I can find a place that refills wine bottles, I will have to stick to my new growler and beer.
Hangover Twistie packet and plastic wrapping from magazine. I haven't had Twisties for a loooong time, so I hope this is more of a one-off. As for the magazine, this was a bit of a rare treat too. I guess - don't buy Twisties and don't buy magazines?
My memory stick died, so I pulled it apart. I guess the moral to this story is treat your memory stick with care.
Double sided tape backing and washi from Little Miss O's school project. Hmm..tricky one. I could have stitched it on, I suppose, but it would have been hard. Glue is packaged too....
Sushi packet - still have not found nori sold loose...
Oh - MAN. A promotions girl gave these to Little Miss O when I was in a flap at the mall, and they kept her busy while I tried to work out what was wrong with my laptop...They have a lot of sugar. They are wrapped in plastic. I would never buy them and next time, I must resist the freebie crap.
Foil wrapper from custard (yum!) and cheese. Still to find a good local deli counter. And I guess we just have to rid ourselves of custard in our lives. Sigh.
Textile waste. I am collecting scraps, but I guess these could have gone in the stuffing bag, some of them...
Envelope adhesive strips. Grrr - I hate these. Make my own envelope time. I have the technology.
