I recently discovered that right down the street from where I work is a Recycling Center. I was originally inspired when watching an episode of 30 Days. In this episode, a Minute Man went to live with an illegal immigrant family for, you guessed it, 30 days. For extra money, the mother recycled everything. This is what she used for Christmas money.  Granted, the place I go doesn’t give you money, but you get that warm fuzzy feeling knowing that garbage bag of bottled water bottles isn’t going to a landfill.  

This is actually a lot easier that I thought it’d be. I decided to recycle plastics and newspapers. I have dedicated one of the trash cans in my pantry to strictly plastics. I also have a box in the office to put the newspaper in after we get done clipping coupons out of it.  This is also where I put magazines or any papers I get through the mail during the week. 

I haven’t bought a hybrid car. I haven’t put solar panels on my house. But I feel in some small way, I’m doing my part to give Mother Earth a Hug. I challenge you to do one little extra step in your daily adventures to make our planet a little better.
