Having a tiny trash can doesn’t mean I recycle more, it means I recycle less! 💪 I just rolled my recycling bin to the curb today—for the third time this year! 😁 I take it out at the end of each season, for a total of four times per year.
My recycling bin is mostly full of cardboard and paper, including 3 months’ worth of soy milk cartons and lots of carryout pizza boxes 😆 I’ve all but eliminated my plastic recycling thanks to my zero waste lifestyle 🙌
Recycling systems aren’t perfect, which means a lot of recyclable material never actually gets recycled. (Only 9% of plastic actually gets recycled!) Try to refuse, reduce and reuse before you recycle 👍
