Re: [GreenYes] why people recycle?
Yes I do.  I also separate the roller from the
deoderant bottle and clean so I can recycle the #2
part of it.  I have a "Misc Plastic" bin that I
collect those items that are not recycled at the
moment, like the dental floss container, hard plastic
packaging and bottle tops...etc.  Collecting this
stuff serves as constant reminder of the convenience
habits that I still maintain and that, I am
responsible for that which I "consume".

I agree with the notion of getting adults to see what
a landfill looks, smells and feels like.  What ever
can add to the population developing a greater sense
of self respect, personal responsibility and
concequence of our actions, will benefit the subject
we are talking about.....

...ok..I will get off my soap box now.  :)
