I just finished reading this article about 50 things you can recycle! I thought it was fun,some of the things listed here I would never have thought to recycle before.
There are several things a person can do to become environmentally friendly. Some people change every aspect of their lives to live a greener lifestyle; they may eat organically, use organic care products, and clean with 100% natural items. Others simply chose to follow the 3 R’s: reuse, reduce and, recycle. There are also those people who chose not to take any action in making earth a healthy place. Some people chose not to do anything because they either don’t know how to incorporate a green lifestyle into their own or because they don’t think that their actions can make a difference. Many people believe that becoming environmentally friendly is hard and time consuming, however, there are several small things a person can do to help the environment. Recycling is a great start to becoming environmentally friendly. Recycling is easier than most people think; it only takes a few important steps for a person or family to play their part in keeping paper, cans, bottles, and other recyclable items out of landfills. Although recycling may seem like a small action, it can actually make a huge difference on the whole spectrum of saving the environment.
Recycling options vary depending where you live so first check out what your community or city offers as a recycling program. Visit www.call2recycle.ca for recycling information in your city. Some cities provide communities with recycling pick up services that work the same way as garbage pickup. However, this service is not very common in most provinces. Most cities have drop-off locations, where people can take their recyclables, these locations are often restricted to only paper, plastic, cardboard, glass, and aluminum, but that doesn’t mean that you have to restrict your recycling to these few categories!
I think it’s important that everyone start recycling, it’s a small action that can make a huge difference!
