Education is a great thing, but sometimes opening our eyes to an issue makes us more aware of it than ever. Such is the case with plastic.
Recycle our plastic bags n' bottles.
Negligible - we pick it up here and there, and drop it on our way by the recycling center (bottles) and grocery store (bags).
While we've been recycling for, well, forever, now we seem to be finding more opportunities to recycle plastic. We pick it up blowing down the street, rolled in parking lot corners, in gutters on our walks. I'm not certain we were recycling the newspaper bags (they're recyclable plastic, but they'd been going who knows where before), and with daily delivery (and double wrapping) they add up quickly.
On a side note: if you don't want to use plastic bottles for your water, you're not sure about the safety of various metal bottles, and you only plan to use it at, say, your desk, consider this option. Then again, if we're at our desks, why can't we use this one?
