I am a firm believer in the benefits of recycling. I think it helps the environment and keeps our earth green. One thing that gets me upset at times is when I see people throw things in the trash when there is a recycling bin nearby. This happened to me the other day.
Last summer on a trip, I was at the beach when I saw a woman throw her empty plastic bottle in the trash. I couldn’t believe it as there was a recycle bin right next to the trash can. This kind of laziness is unacceptable to me. I mentioned to the lady what she had done and she apologized claiming that she wasn’t thinking. I hope she thinks about it in the future.
One thing I have been doing lately is some winter cleaning in anticipation of Spring. Since I went through just about every room in the house, I came up with a few items I no longer need. It hit me just then that I should give them to worthy organization.
The good thing is that I don’t have to go anywhere. There is one organization that will pick up my used items from my home. I feel good knowing I am helping others in need as well as getting my house a little cleaner.
I would like to remind everybody that doesn’t know that today is Earth Day. We should all take a few minutes and reflect on how we can help keep our earth clean. There are many different things we can do.
There are many earth friendly products at your local stores and there are new ones coming out every day. I like feeling like I am doing a little to help by using these products. I hope you will too.
