Well, I have had an interesting week trying to creatively recycle and I have found a change I can make this week to reduce my impact on the environment. Instead of throwing away our egg cartons, I am going to keep what we use or donate them to individuals who can use them. This week’s green challenge to find a creative item to recycle has been accomplished.
Our garbage ends up on the curb only about once a month, so very little actually is thrown away at our house. One of the items that has ended up in the garbage is our egg cartons, but no more. We are going to use egg cartons to grow seedlings and I am going to donate any extra egg cartons to a local co-op that sells farm fresh eggs. We may actually start buying these same eggs, but we just have not taken that step yet.
I may not have changed enough this week to save the world, but I made a small change this week that will help reduce our impact on the environment. That is all I can do, right? On to next week’s challenge! Check back later today in order to see what next week’s challenge is.
