A lot of people these days are hopping on the GREEN train and becoming more conscientious of their day to day choices and how those decisions will impact our futures. And as I mentioned before, we are trying to do our part to be more Earth friendly, although we are surely not perfectionists in that area.
For as long as I can remember, my parents have recycled. To continue on with the tradition, Chris and I decided to buy some containers especially for that purpose. It just so happened that our cute little bins fit perfectly in our pantry and after adding a couple of labels to keep track of what goes where, we have an efficient recycling system.
Honestly, a person wouldn’t even have to buy something to put their recycling in. Paper bags, grocery bags, etc. all work great at keeping the mess corralled and also allow for easy transport to your neighborhood drop off (assuming you don’t have door to door pick up.) Plus, recycling is fun!
See how much excitement Maverick exudes when he is in Earth saving mode? (We call him the Recycler.) You can get the whole family involved and you’d be surprised how little trash you actually end up lugging out to the garbage bin as a result.
