Forgive Me Father, For I've Used Plastic

week49_waste.jpgGarbage blogging, a trend we have reported on before, continues to gain momentum. Witness this Fiji Times report on Oakland, Calif. resident Beth Terry, who takes a photo of the carefully organized plastic she’s used or come across each week and posts it on her blog, “Fake Plastic Fish.”

Terry’s blog stood out for two reasons: 1) She’s managed to maintain her garbage watch consistently for an entire year, and 2) While other garbage bloggers I’ve seen approach the endeavor almost as anthropologists, with curiosity, Terry’s blog is borderline confessional. She’s determined to rid the world of plastic, and uses the blog as a forum to publicize her weekly transgressions.

How many of us could stand up to the same scrutiny?
