Our zero waste, minimalist desk
Ask yourself: does this still work? Take a look at all those e products (USB keys…) donate, recycle all the things you have not used in a while. Do I use it regularly? We had a collection of professional books, we donated them to HK public library years ago. Do I already have a few? We donated a shoebox of pencils, pens, staplers, calculators etc…to Vision First.
You will notice there is no bin under the desk, the little mail we get is cut and used as scrap paper (put a sticker on your mail ox no junk mail, the post office hands them out). The printer is there but barely used thanks to the camera on the phone we barely have to print nowadays.
In the compartments:
1 fountain pen + ink
HP old cartridges that need to be recycled scrap paper( receipts, envelops cut in 2, A4 cut in 4…)
3D glasses for the movie theatre
Envelops (still using spare from my wedding 7 years ago, I might have a lifetime worth of envelops).
Enjoy clearing your desk
