Recycling is good for the neighborhood and the environment. I have been recyling for a number of years. It has reduced my household trash to almost nothing. You can reuse plastic containers to hold numerous items. We should respect and care for our environment. The earth is our home. The connection to all living things is self-evident. Birmingham has a recycling program but few participate. It doesn’t pay you to recycle. The time to be environmentally concious is now. Later on, it will be to late to do anything. Action is the key to helping the planet. Every little step can be beneficial to improving environmental dilemma. One green hint for you is using reusable cloth shopping bags for grocery shopping. It means one person less using plastic bags.
