AMERICA RECYCLES DAY NOVEMBER 15, 2015: RE-THINK THIS

I usually don't acknowledge national anything......... day, week or month; it's just not my style.  Perhaps that's because I feel it's gotten out of hand.  Gee, why not create "National Breadcrumb Day", "National Toilet Paper Day", or "National Dustpan Day".  Get my drift?

Anyway, November 15, 2015, is supposedly America Recycles Day, and my learning of this prompted me to dig up a post from the past.  Go ahead, give it a looksie.

I bring my recyclables to a local facility on a regular basis, tote my own grocery bags to the supermarket, and try to make use of and repurpose whatever I can.  There's even a scrap metal facility in my area that I can take advantage of.  However, I am still baffled with the general DIY and crafty folk's continued focus with reusing and repurposing things that can easily be recycled at a designated facility anyway.  If properly disposed of, they shouldn't end up in a landfill.  What I seldom observe, nor practice enough of myself, is reusing and repurposing things that can't be recycled in any way, especially bulk items.  Those are what we should be concerned about even more so, and be going to great lengths to magically transforming their trashiness into "treasuredness".

I'd love for you to share the recycling thoughts in your head!
