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.
