Recycling – The major reason we recycle is to reuse a resource until its useful life is exhausted.  The benefits of recycling include diverting waste from landfills. However, before we recycle we should think about reducing what we use in the first place, then reuse items as long as we can, then we can recycle.

Composting – Composting is another way to recycle.  By keeping food waste, nonrecyclable paper, lawn clippings and brush out of the landfill we return those nutrients trapped in this material back to mother earth. (Composting article)

Plastics – Single use plastic bags, straws, bottles and cups have become part of our American way of life.  Many articles point out their detrimental effect on our environment.  How dependent are you on plastic?  Keep your own Plastics Journal for a day and find out.  (Plastic Journal article)
