One year's waste

My year has ended as of the 1st of July and this is all the waste I have produced in the last 365 days (most of which was due to my cat's specialist diet).
What an enormous impact we can have on our
waste stream by eliminating plastic.
 
My waste:
Receipts - thermal printers only work on paper imbedded with plastic
Accidental plastic - not knowing that there was plastic in something when I purchased it
Gift plastic - people carefully choosing plastic free gifts and then sending it to me in plastic courier bags
Hungry plastic - this didn't happen very often thankfully, but once or twice I was forced to buy food in plastic out of hunger and lack of choice
