While this bin is DEFINITELY full 😂, it’s only the second time I’m taking out my family’s recyclables in 2021. I’ve managed to keep our recycling to two blue bins a year by refilling containers at bulk stores and opting for unpackaged food when possible 👍
Recycling is great, but our recycling programs aren’t perfect. So I try to avoid packaging (thereby saving the energy and resources required to create it) rather than hope it gets recycled.
With everything going on in the world, I know recycling is probably the LAST thing on your mind 😜 I share what I do, but everyone’s circumstances are different. We do what we can. And every little bit helps 💚
