My sister even recycles left over food into a brown square box, I think there was a plastic bag in it... a green plastic bag but plastic nonetheless. There are wheely bins for glass and paper, some for plastics and cardboard and a regular trash can. I couldn't help feeling totally guilty about my lack of recycling. I mean, I know I should do it but no one is
There is a recycling place down the street to which I take cardboard boxes so as not to fill the trash can, but I never take my milk jugs or my magazines and newspapers there. I never take my shredding to the local pet shelter, I don't keep my glass bottles and take them to the bottle bank or anything like that. There's a huge chain-link pen type thingy at the fire station for aluminum cans, but do I take our cans there?.... no... we don't drink out of cans that's probably why.
The other thing that struck me as strange at first was that every time I went into a store to buy something they'd ask me if I wanted a bag... yes of course I want a bag... I need something to put this crap in. Oh.. in good old M&S they CHARGED me 10p for a freakin' plastic bag. My sissy was quick to explain their tactics of charging for bags as a deterrent to using plastic bags!!! Should have taken my "shopper" with me. I bought a few "shoppers" while I was there because I didn't want to have eggs thrown at me for carrying plastic bags.
So all in all it's left me wondering just what we can do to make South GA catch up with the rest of the world in their efforts to rid the planet of all the waste we're creating. First things first, I am totally committing to taking my "shoppers" with me EVERYWHERE!!!! There are so many cute ones to be had, it's like the latest must have accessory. Secondly, I am purchasing a rotary clothes line to plant in the yard, hubby is dead against this but he's fighting a losing battle on this one. The laundry smells so fresh and clean when dried outdoors so rotary line it is. Join me, bloggers, get yourself one and let me know how you like it. Of course the nether garments will remain inside and be dried by the big bad drier but it won't take long will it??? what do you mean my Granny panties may take three hours on hot?????
