Now my waste mostly comes from some food packaging I can still not avoid. And I do not keep meat and fish packaging for long! I have also been wondering how I can freeze my own meat without plastic… Glass is not feasible because too much too heavy and meat sticks so you have to leave it in the jar. Paper? It sucks the water…
I reuse bottles I find as mini plant warmers, and protection against lizards.

Perhaps I should have mentioned the choice of wood floor is not merely an aesthetic one. We noticed that in the winter, the slab got super cold and it was not feasible to do yoga on, which is something we really need. Also, in the warm times, because the slab is cooler and we don't have central air, we get condensation on the slab. We have already had mold issues and seeing as we have lots of wood furniture, I'd be concerned it would become a mold farm with that stuff on a sweating tile floor. So we decided that insulating this part of the floor was the way to go, even though I don't love the materials. I can live with most of it, just not sure about the plywood.
I wish we had known about that sealer! That sounds like a great solution. How much odor was there while it dried? Unfortunately, I don't think we could use that now without moving out for several days and we have too many other obligations presently to handle that right now.

Honestly I had forget I had written this post, thank you Steve Mendez for replying after all this time, I am glad it brought me back here. Much less that it was only a year ago that I was having this dilemma and just want to say thank you for all your posts, it was great to hear all the different perspectives and experiences.
If it matters at all, I decided to obtain an AS in environmental horticulture at my local community college, and I am now just about done, and will have a paper that says I have a degree by the end of next year, something I thought I would never have. It has taken me these last few quarters to really appreciate it though, for most of the beginning I was questioning myself and the direction I decided to go. Its turned out to be a good idea, even though it is not exactly what I wanted, I learned a lot.
To give some prospective I live in the bay area, probably one of the few places you can make a living as a gardener, I now call my self a fine gardener, (not sure if I deserve the title yet), that focuses on edibles and mostly CA natives, have a few clients, and know how to organize myself and the clients I have.
Thanks again for all your input!
