If you follow us on Facebook you'll see a weekly challenge of small and simple things we can do to make a difference. Collectively our individual actions matter. Here's one example.
I hate to throw away items that are easily recycled. So recently when I visited my favorite Italian deli I asked if they could get a recycling bin. I repeated this request on a couple of visits. This week I was delighted to see that they have added a recycling bin. I thanked the manager to make sure he knew I noticed and was a very happy customer. When I left the only thing that had to go into the trash was my napkin!
The next time you're at a church activity, fast food store or other venue where items are going into the trash that could instead be recycled -- speak up. We can politely encourage better actions.
