"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Recycling grocery bags

Today we were headed to the grocery store, so we dropped off our recycling.

The project:
Recycle plastic bags - somehow these add up quickly even though we usually take our own bags to the store. We also turn in the recyclable bags in which our newspapers are delivered every morning and some other recyclable bags.


Why bother?
This is something we do regularly. For complete details, see this link.

Worth it?
Better than throwing them in the landfill. And while I can control my grocery bag usage, there are other recyclable bags that find their way to our house.
