Reduce Reuse Recycle

The first step is admitting you have a problem...

Hello, my name is Shelly and I don't recycle.


I know, it's horrible right?

I know I should recycle but I'm lazy and that's been as good a reason as any not to.

But I've seen the light.

I'm mending my ways (and I've got the extra bin under my sink to prove it).

I'm officially a recycler

and a reuser

and a reducer.

So-get thee behind me laziness and overflowing landfills!

Excuse me, I have to go separate my glass from my tins or my cans from my bottles or...

I AM a RECYCLER!! Glad to see ya join the band wagon!! I keep a paper bag in the kitchen for ALL paper waste, ie: junk mail, newspapers, sale papers, etc.
We also have a can outside for cans, plastic & glass. Luckily, we don't have to sort them!!
Some towns actually fine people who DO NOT recycle so, other than the obvious, it IS a good thing to get into!!
I actually cringe when I see someone tear a piece of junk mail and throw it in the regular trash!!

Rock on!

Just be sure none of your junk mail contains any personal information, per "the badge" in my house.

I was the same way not too long ago. It was a pain in the butt so I didn't do it. When we moved into our house I started recycling because we had the bins so I figured I might as well do it. Now I do my part :)
