So I have been recycling for over 3 years now. Hard to believe it has been that long. But all the time I try and see what else I can recycle instead of throwing into a landfill. It is getting to the point that I start to feel guilty about throwing just about anything away. I think about how long it is going to take to break down in a landfill. A stray sock, clothing that is ripped, stuff I don’t want and know no one else wants either I start wondering what to do with other than throw away? I came up with a new use for my hubby’s old holey socks… dust rags. But what about all the other stuff?
I know I have to throw some things away, there is just no way around it but our purchases now days come with just so much packaging. I look at things and wonder if all of it is so neccessary. Here are some of my gripes about wasteful packaging: double bagging at the stores, bags for produce you use for the 10 minute ride home, kids toy packaging, plastic on just about everything.
I am sure I am not the only one fed up with all the waste. But now I have the guilt but I know it should be shared with the manufacturers of these products. Oh well, in the meantime I will continue to recycle and donate to try ad make this world a little greener.
By the way, if there are a ton of spelling errors I apologize, the spell check has disappeared off the options on my blog writing tools. Also, where did my blogroll go?
