I came across this interesting article in the OC Register recently. It highlights the importance of how each of us can individually reduce the amount of waste we produce just by recycling. More and more communities, especially in California, are making great strides to help their residents recycle. But ultimately, it’s up to each one of us to decide to make the conscious effort to sort our household recyclables, take back plastic bags to grocery stores for recycling, or even hold on to things like plastic bottles until we come across a recycling bin. Small, easy behavioral changes can have a huge impact. So join me in committing to recycle more and waste less this year.
