Entry: Rinse. Reuse. Recycle. Repeat. Friday, December 05, 2014

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.
