Did you know (see I do sound like a public service announcement, the title did not lie) that you can recycle more than just your plastic grocery bags (we all get a one by accident every once in a while, don't hide you can admit it) in the recycling bins at the grocery shops. To be perfectly honest I did not know and so that is why I am passing along this very valuable information. The more you know (second cheese ball attempt at being a PSA). Anyway found this great website http://www.plasticbagrecycling.org/plasticbag/index.html that lists out a bunch of other plastics that you can recycle in your local grocery store recycling bins. Just to list a few: dry cleaning bags, bread bags, and the plastic from bulk toilet paper or paper towel packages (OMG I already feel better about this, since I am not going to lie I had been throwing that sort of stuff away, my conscious has been eased).
A quick jump here, and I promise I try not to bore you, but about 7 years ago I tried to start a recycling program with the clothing store where I worked. I was in the back sorting through all the clothes that were delivered on a daily basis. Anyway all the plastic I had to throw away was disgraceful. I had done some research, and at that time in the town I was living in there was no where to recycle those bags (similar to dry cleaning bags). Now you can at the grocery store. So just in case anyone works in a clothing shop that does not recycle those bags, ask if you can take them home yourself to recycle. There are so many ways that we can help save the world. I see smoke coming out of my ears, which means there may be a new project on the horizon for me (watch out clothing stores that do not recycle) once Leftover Love really takes off (please no breath holding, need to keep all friends alive).
Well that should do it for today, hope all is well out there in the world.
