AOW – The Keurig Question

Have you ever tossed a piece of paper into the trash can because it was right there when the recycling bin was on the other side of the room? Do you just buy another water bottle or refill the one you finished? Is recycling really that big of an inconvenience to you? Maybe you should think again then, because you’re making a big impact on the world, whether it’s a good one or a bad one.

Sometimes it may seem like recycling that one can won’t help enough to be worth it, but actually, one recycled can can produce enough energy to watch tv for 4 hours! If every person were to help out just once, it would make a huge difference. Even if you’re not big into recycling, also pitch in and do the small things when they cross your mind. For example, there is a website called blackle.com It’s a search engine by Google that saves energy. The page is black so it uses less watt hours to power up. You could help just by setting it as your home page!

Still don’t think you’d be making much of a difference? Then pick up the slack of other people! If you put a plastic bottle in the recycling bin every time you saw one misplaced, you would have saved a ton of plastic! It may seem like a lot of work, but if you just get in the habit of going green it will come to you naturally! Imagine the difference that just you could make!

So next time you’re running out the door and don’ think you have enough time to throw something into a recycling bin instead of the trash, think again. Saving our planet is much more important than saving yourself a few seconds.
