If an archaeologist of the future found your perfectly preserved garbage, what would the “garbologist” find and what do you think it would say about you and your way of life? (You don’t have to get real personal!)

This question is asking what YOUR garbage says about YOU and YOUR way of life! So think about what your family throws away during, say, a week, and then write it up.

What's the difference between a family that throws away lots of boxes of frozen dinners and a family that throws away items that indicate that all meals are fixed "from scratch"?

What's the difference between a family that throws away worn-out clothing only and a family that throws away clothing that may or may not be worn out?

Keep asking yourself questions like these.
