Recycling

Cool things I found in a few Bellingham stores.

On a recent trip to Bellingham I was pleased to see some stores I visited each had special ways to either recycle, reduce or make use of recycled materials.

The Target in Bellis Fair Mall has receptacles for batteries, MP3’s, cellphones, printer cartridges, bottles and plastic bags.Trader Joe’s had compostable utensils you could help yourself to on your way out. Of course using your own utensils is preferable.The Fred Meyer had a bench made out of recycled plastic. 862 plastic milk jugs to be exact. Pretty cool I must say. It proves that some of those things we recycle will have a useful future.

Shopping. It’s become very complicated and simple at the same time. Finding these suprises in stores is almost as fun as the shopping nowadays.

By the way, do any men read this blog? It always seems to be woman that comment.

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. Woman! I finally figured out how to follow you! Yay! Thank God. I love your stuff!!
    Finding these things ARE as fun as shopping. Probably even more. (I’m not much of a shopper. I have no patience.) And I’ve found very few men blog—but I bet you have a few.
