So I try to be environmental friendly and try to do my
part to try to save this earth's resources.
I take one of these paper bags to the local paper recycling
bin about every other day. I put the paper's from the circular's
in this bag along with envelopes/papers from the mail.
My local and Sunday newspapers are also recycled.
I have also started taking cardboard from boxes from cereal, rice a roni,
medicine, pepsi, toliet paper rolls, etc.
Check your local recycling center to see what items they will take.
On some of the bins will have a list of what items they will accept
posted on the front of them.
Did you know that one person will use one logging truck full of timber
in one year. Just think of the paper you write on, toliet paper, paper towels,
napkins (in fast food restaurants), newspapers, cardboard boxes (that contain
your breakfast, lunch or dinner) are all paper goods that come from thousands
of trees that harvested every year.
I have a medium size garbage can in my hallway closet that I use to keep
the papers to be recycled. It is close to deposit any papers easily and fast
any time of the day.
When it gets full I get a paper sack and put all
the papers/cardboard into it and put in my car to be
dropped off when I go up town.
paper bags. When bagging my groceries they will ask what kind
of bags you'd like. I always get the paper ones, so I can recycle
them. They will break down where plastic bags will stay in the
local landfill for 1,000 years. Which brings me to my next subject.
Do you recycle your plastic bags?
I usually gather the plastic bags I don't want after shopping and
put them in my trunk of my car. Then when I go to Walmart or
other grocery stores that collect plastic bags I will deposit them into
their collection boxes that is located near the front entrance of the store.
I usually get mine from a local grocery store Macey's.
When you recycle you also save on the resources to make new items,
like electricity and water.
If you are interested in recycling as much as possible, one good
site that is available to learn as much as possible while earning points
to redeem for coupons or other items is the Recycle Bank.
I have already received 2 coupons for 4 free cans of cat food each.
So the next time your drive up town, drive by your local recycling bin
and deposit a bag in the recycle dumpster or when you go to Walmart
deposit your bag full of plastic bags when you walk through the door.
It only takes a few moments of your time to protect mother earth as much
as possible because....
she is the only one !!!
