Let’s talk about recycling. It’s something that I have been passionate about for a long time. Minimizing waste and making sure that I’m properly recycling what I’m using! There are so many things you can do that make a big difference. Our studio doesn’t have the greatest system for recycling. Please tell me I’m not the only one who gets angry when someone throws a bottle in the garbage! I can’t tell you how many times we’re taking out the office garbage and find a whole bunch of bottles just sitting in the garbage bin! Recycling is easy, and it’s so important. Anyway, we both have become bottle dumpster divers when we see that happen and chuck them in our own little office recycling bin to later be returned. There is a Return-It Express just down the street from our studio, so Lindsay often throws a bag in the back of her bike, or I drop them off on my way home.
Ok so I need to talk about how EASY this is to do. I’ll be honest and say I gave up dropping off my bottles because it seemed messy and inconvenient, but this is anything but that. We have a little bin to throw all our bottles into over the week, throw them in the bag, and drop them off! Once you get to the Express depot, you type in your phone number, a label prints, stick it on your bag and throw it on the conveyor belt and you walk away! The money is deposited into your account where you can redeem it for cash back, gift cards, or donate it to charity!
I’m sure all of our bottle money will soon be cashed in for more
