  • I'm not sure, we feed a stray cat (kinda like pig slop) so I don't really have to look at wasted food but I can see the paper that my kids have ripped up colored on or made a mess out of.

  • I would say food.

  • Food for thought. I am not sure. I am going to pay more attention to see which. I am one who saves and reuses leftovers. I also use washrags and cloth dust rags. I rarely use paper towels or paper plates.

  • We use paper towels, but only about a roll a week. We do print a lot of things for our homeschooling, but if I am printing two worksheets I do a front and back so I only need one piece of paper. Extra copies are cut up and used for scrap paper. Food we wasted more of until our teenage daughter's boyfriend started coming over every day - now he eats any leftovers we have.

  • Paper. I am a paper towel fiend!! Not because of the germs, but because of the convenience.
