Do you recycle?

Do you recycle?

1: You name it. I recycle it. Aluminum cans, paper, plastic, glass, metal etc. I have bins labeled and lined up in my place and I take the time to wash things out so they don't smell.

2: I try to make a conscious effort to recycle.

3. Recycling takes too much time.

yup, I don't see why I shouldn't.
It's gotten so far that I can't bring myself to throw a can or a bottle in a normal trash bin when I'm abroad or somewhere where there's no seperate bin for it. I end up bringing empty cans and bottles home with me instead.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

Well, it's not a choice anymore, we have to. Otherwise we - or our children - will be stuck in a huge pile of garbage without any resources to get rid of it.

But I had to learn to recycle. And it helps to live in a country which is world champion in recycling aluminium. Get's you going to keep that title

I recycle everything, though if more than two 1.75 liters of empty booze bottles are in the recycling can, I get embarassed and toss a third one into the trash so the recycle people won't think I'm an alcoholic. But that only happens once every few months.

Yes! I don't see it as some noble duty or whatever. I'm just used to doing it and get mad if people neglect to recycle.

I don't, and I know I should. But in my defense, I live in the middle of nowhere, and would probably have to drive 2 hours to get to a recycling center, which would hurt the planet just as much.

my mum makes us recycle everything.
but that's cause if we have something in a wrong bag, the garbagemen don't take the bag

Everything will change
But,love remains the same
