Rinse. Reuse. Recycle. Repeat.
The older I get, the more I worry about the world. I figured now is a good time as any to try to prevent my further contribution to things I see plaguing us these days. Waste. Pollution. Oblivion. I've been told often that by recycling even one can, I'm not going to make a difference. That is exactly what's wrong with people these days. They figure... what's the use? I don't intend to adopt that mindset. I think all it takes is one person to change things. If you can think it, there's bound a way to do it. A few months back, our local waste management company started a recycling program. They provided the bin and a few pointers on what's acceptable for recycling and all we have to do is participate. I began with things I was personally using and realized that we waste so much paper at work, why not bring that home as well? Thus began random placement of boxes around the office. I still haven't gotten everyone to participate but the majority does. (Originally written 12-28-2008)
