We are all now very aware of environmental issues aren't we? We can't avoid hearing about what we should be doing to maintain the world's equilibrium. I for one was very slow off the mark what with being a 60'S child who went nowhere without my hairspray and now being told I am to blame for the global warming. Ouch! It hurts to know I may have destroyed the earth but I have to say not single handed so recycling is going to save face for me and now I have become a recycler extraordinaire.
We now need to have in our kitchens three separate bins to be able to recycle effectively and don't they take up space? What makes up for that? Well I do feel so much better when I put things in the correct bins so it gives me retribution on all my bad deeds over the years even if they take up half my floor space.
We have a normal bin for normal rubbish and shredded paper because that cannot go in the paper bin though I do ask WHY? We have a paper bin for all our paper, obviously except for shredded paper, cardboard, food outer boxes, plastic bottles, but no lids, and a selection of miscellaneous things we have to keep checking are going in the right bin. Recently we got a new bin for glass but no glasses, just bottles no lids. It ends up being a daily chore to make sure that you get the right things in the right bins. Next all 3 have to be taken out and put in the correct outside bin or you get told off by the council so woe betide you if you put a black sack in the paper bin!!
Then you have to remember which goes out kerbside and the older I get the harder that becomes. Tuesday is normal rubbish day but every 2 weeks is paper bin day as well and once a month you have to remember to put out the glass bin on the same day as the paper one. Thanks god I have a weekly calendar!
So as much as I feel I have to conform to recycling I found the best way I can help the planet safe is to recycle the hot air I use that just rises to the ceiling from my central heating and to do that I thank my Hunter ceiling fan with light. Not only does it have a lifetime warranty but it works in reverse so believe it or not does manage to save me up to 24% of my energy cost.
This article is only my opinion but I hope you found the funny side of recycling and carry on with yours.
