My family started recycling last week. And YES, we should have been recycling years ago. Better late than never.
Aside from the fact that I’ve known for some time now about our responsibility as stewards of creation . . . I took this a bit more seriously when I participated in a survey about how many earths it would take to sustain the world’s population if everyone lived like me. I discovered it would take 7.5 planets!!! You can take the test at www.myfootprint.org.
Recycling is a bit of a pain. We started with 3 bins and really need 6. If we mix things up a bit we can get by with 4.
When I carried out our first bag filled with recyclable plastic, I must admit, it did feel good contributing to caring for the earth God has entrusted to us.
Got any great recycling tips?
