There are finite resources on our planet. As Americans we enjoy a comfortable lifestyle; compared to many parts of the world, maybe too comfortable. We have lived – and continue to live – as if there are infinite resources for us at our disposal. We live in a throwaway society – disposable diapers, disposable razors, paper towels, copy paper, plastic bags; you get the picture – and the following helps with the big picture.

We hope the importance of recycling and its role in sustainability makes more sense; and people can better understand how critical it is for everyone to participate!  When we put out our paper, glass bottles, plastic, etc.; it’s helpful to see the relevance and that if we don’t start conserving our resources today; our children might not have enough for their future tomorrow. Many people are still not convinced and think this is just another way for the government to interfere. There are plenty of facts to prove that this is real and that we have to act now. So we all have to get with the program to make a difference!
