Waste Trade-Off

It should be clear from the discussion of waste reduction: there is a trade-off between the various types of waste. If you want to reduce one kind of waste, you may be forced to accept a little more of another waste. In business, the choice is easy, because in most cases, waste can be made equivalent to cost.

Well, your life as a whole is not a business. Since it is difficult to evaluate this trade off objectively in your own life, you depend on your individual choice. Which kind of waste is worse for you is also a value decision. Just do it consciously.
