Recycling: I USED TO BE A PLASTIC BOTTLE

I was at Wild Oats Market on Sunday morning, and they were selling grocery bags for 99 cents that are recycled from plastic - plus, they're deeper than most bags I've seen at supermarkets, as well as having longer straps that can go over your shoulder.

 

(Whole Foods no longer offers plastic bags at their stores.)

 

How to Start a Recycling Program

Decide what to recycle—Evaluate how much space you have to sort and store materials and what items you tend to go through. Paper products are a safe bet to be recycled, and aluminum or steel cans are valuable. Other commonly accepted items include glass and plastic bottles.

Find a vendor—Check with your local recycling center, municipality and waste hauler to find out what kind of materials are accepted in your area. The green Earth 911 recycling locator can help.

Decide on storage—Washable plastic bins or trash cans are the best and cardboard boxes are good too.
