RECYCLE

--- Patricia Feager

 

While running into the grocery store to pick up groceries at Market Street in Flower Mound, I ran into the Recycle Man! This robot creation using Michelob Ultra Light Beers reminded me that today is my parents' anniversary. They got married 71 years ago. Although they only survived 50 years of wedding anniversaries, they taught me to recycle at a very early age. As first-generation Americans, the passed the torch to me: "The Golden Rule, truth, honesty, work, money, integrity, and family values. When my father served in WW11, my mother worked in the factories. All of that occurred before I was born. As children of the Great Depression, they were advocates for recycling. 

 

With all the inclement weather from 2018-2019 severe snowstorms, blizzards, flooding, earthquakes, and tornadoes throughout the United States there is going to be a great need for clean-up in rivers and streets. Rebuilding parts of the cities that have been impacted by disasters will be necessary. I know first-hand, that children have impressionable minds and many will look up to their parents and guardians for guidance. Recycling can be fun! This recycled robot illustrates that well! Kids can be innovative and create fun things to do for entertainment. Everyone can help the economy by recycling and thinking up new ways to make something unique while saving money. Life lessons are our teachers. I think of children as the young inventors, the innovators for technology, and the greatest minds yet to come!

Michael Jacobs - Cleary, learning lessons are endless! I think that is why I always enjoyed watching little kids play. They have quite an imagination! The possibilities of using recycling materials are endless!

Happy Tuesday, to you!

Nina Hollander - I do believe there must be alternative ways to recycle and dispose of trash without filling up the landfills. Where my daughter lives, they pay for trash pick up by the pound. She is very cognizant of what is tossed out and recycles wisely.

I so agree, Patricia. I can tell you that our recycle bin always has twice as much stuff in it than our regular trash bin (and they are exactly the same size). But I've heard disturbing stories about how there are areas where they are "cheating" on how they dispose of the recycled trash.

One thing I do is take all newspapers to my local shelter... they use it to line the cages.

Nina Hollander - Good for you for taking newspapers to your "local shelter!" Dogs give back so much more to society and not just to their owners. I'm sure shelters appreciate it too!

I would like to know if schools are teaching children in various ways to recycle and perhaps making it a competition for school projects.

I recycle and it is quite shocking how much recycle items 2 people have in 1 week.

Hi Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, when I moved to my home(previous one), I was shocked to find out there were no recycle bins. Yes, it was outside of the city limits but is that really an excuse? I don't even trust where all the recycled trash goes to as I've personally seen other "stuff" mixed with recycled trash in one of the landfills in my area.

Patricia now that my kids are married and out of the house, my wife and I do not generate a lot of trash, but we make sure that everything that is supposed to be recycled is recycled.

I'm an amazon addict so we wind up with a full recycle can every two weeks filled just with boxes. Then I have my other can for everything else. I read where Amazon is going to offer to consolidate items if you don't need them next-day. Maybe I can get back to one can soon.

I am also a strong proponent of recycling. People should follow the rules on recycling, like rinsing cans and bottles before tossing in the bin. Otherwise, the contaminated product might spoil the entire bin and cause it all to be discarded. It's all about education. Reuse (like in the case of your robot) before recycling. In other words, if newspapers and towels, blankets, etc., can be donated, do that first.

Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Three words to live by.

We always laugh that with all the toys available at our home ... it's 1 thing that gets played with the most often.  My wife keeps a bag of paper tubes from paper towels, toilet paper, etc ... and the kids drag that bag out and CREATE games and other things all the time.  Give them that bag of paper tubes and they're happy.   

Go figure!

We do a lot of recycling; I do hope the things we put in our recycling bins are actually getting recycled. 

I've also been trying to cut down on my purchase of anything with plastic. It's really quite impossible to purchase nothing with plastic - but I am cutting down.

It surprises me how many people are willing to just drop stuff, they will not take the time to dispose of something correctly, much easier to drop it, often on someone else's land. Such a shame. If we all picked up some trash, and disposed of it correctly, be it a can or whatever the world would be a better place.
