be conscious

Stop wasting! I see people wasting and wasting so much everyday and it makes me sick. Think about what you are using only 1 time and throwing away… your plastic starbucks “coffee-milkshake” cup you so casually tossed in the nearest garbage can is not going anywhere for awhile, it’s sitting in a landfill someplace. Just because YOU don’t see it anymore doesn’t mean it’s gone.

I don’t think people understand that recycling is a last resort. don’t get me wrong, i love recycling, if you don’t recycle your an idiot. REDUCE! REDUCE! REDUCE your waste, then REUSE what you can…. then as a last resort RECYCLE!

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m guilty of it to, we all get stuck with excess packaging, plastic grocery bags, etc. But please be conscious of your waste, do what you can, take your own togo coffee mug when you get coffee everyday instead of using a non-recyclable togo cup, take your own bag to the grocery store. The next time a sales clerk asks you if you need a bag, smile and say no thanks!

REDUCE, REUSE, recycle!
