No More Paper or Plastic?
Posted by adamswife on March 10, 2008
Time to report on what I’ve been doing for the environment. Sarcastic Mom started me thinking about the environment and what I could do each day to make it a bit better – or at least not to add to the problems. Back in February I talked about participating in the first Earth Day and my early childhood efforts at recycling. My parents subscribed to the philosophy
“Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”
Good for the environment and the bank balance. So, here is what I’ve done lately.
First off, I bought some material to make grocery bags and netting for the produce. Notice – I got this from the remnant bin – I’m “using it up.” This is what it looks like unrolled.
I’m gonna have the prettiest shopping bags in Wal-Mart!
I’ve been saving up my plastic bags to return to the store. Today I put them in the recycle bin. And while I was at it I discovered that Wal-Mart has bins for aluminum and plastic containers as well. That’s more recycling I can now do.
