When trash day comes around, don’t you wish you had a little less on your lawn? Chances are, you’ve felt guilty in the past for contributing to the world’s waste problem in the past. Whether you weren’t sure or just didn’t want to go down to recycling center in your neighborhood, these are habits that should be changed. Here’s a reminder of what you can recycle when you’re looking around your home for what to get rid of.
All Your Paper
Paper comes in many forms, and there are too many cracker boxes and books left out by the side of the road. Your paper plates and towels can either by recycled or composted as well, so don’t make this mistake after you have a party that leaves you with several days worth of leftover paper products.
Lots of Your Food
Speaking of composting, there are too many raw fruits and veggies getting thrown away. Apple stems, seeds and even most cooked plant matter will make excellent nutrients for your garden, and you can feel good that you’ve found several uses for what you’ve already bought.
Even old ratty underwear can be recycled with the technology we have today, so definitely find out if you have something in your area that will allow you to recycle fabric. For anything else in good shape, there’s always donation centers around you that would be happy to take it off your hands to help someone in need.
