At work, I noticed a lot of paper gets tossed in the garbage. 5 steps away we have a recycling container. I wonder why people don’t take the additional steps to help reduce waste. Is it weird that I always pull out the paper waste from the garbage and move it to recycling? I get a little embarrassed when people catch me doing this, but I always follow it up with a comment like, “I’m a recycler.”
Is there anything that you do to conserve, recycle or reuse that you find embarrassing, but you do it anyways? Is there anything that you wish your employer would improve on, in terms of going green? If so, I would love to hear about it.
