"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 Plastic Bags - Last Drop of 2009

The project:
Gather up the plethora of plastic that made it into our home this holiday season and deliver it to the plastic bag recycling drop spot.

A few minutes to gather, less than a minute to stuff them into the box at our drop spot - the local grocery store.

Why bother?
Ideally, we wouldn't be using plastic and tossing it aside to end up in landfills for decades to come, flying through our deserts or forests, floating across our oceans. The least we can do is recycle it. It's easy. It's free. And it helps provide a source for other products while preserving valuable natural resources.

Worth it?
