So proud of myself today! (Today not necessarily meaning the day you are reading this. I sometimes outline my posts, and let them simmer. Sometimes for months on end!) My recycling was full, and my garbage was empty!! YAY me!
I had challenged myself to see how little trash I could have, while recycling everything I could conceivably put in that blue can. I love how well I did on this challenge. It took some work, and creative thinking as to how that bit of string could possibly be a recycled item, (I decided it was recycling because it was made of mineral, not animal or vegetable. That is HOW you decide, right? Ask animal, mineral or vegetable??)
Of course, I still hadn’t taken the trash out of all the cans in the house yet, but….
I’m nominating myself for a Best Recycler Award!!
(Wonder if that comes with any sort of monetary prize?? WEll, since I made it up just now, and I’m broke, I highly doubt it. Boo hiss!!!)
