The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that the average American resident produces 4.9 pounds of waste per day. While that figure may be initially shocking, developing more mindful consumption habits within our current systems is possible! TCI developed the Waste Audit toolkit as an introductory analysis of the waste an individual or group produces in a week. Conducting waste audits allows you to better understand the types of waste you produce and identify where they stream from. This toolkit will empower participants to consciously assess their waste consumption habits.
