Don’t just chuck that Recyclababble Container


We’ve been trying to master composting. We have the leaf piles, a rotating barrel, AND a worm farm. The back yard isn’t messy because of these things, it’s still the kids’ toys and a real need for a good mow to blame for that.

We’re sending all the trash out to the recycling center, but it’s those #1’s that are getting refused. No.1: PETE (polyethylene terephthalate).

The discussion started at Tree Hugger is a good one: Talking about it.

There’s more on #1: National Geographic Green Guide on plastics

It’s off to Google for solutions…
