    Why don't people recycle!!! It's not like it takes more energy to put the thing in the recycling bin!!! Sorry, didn't mean to get flustered.

    If this big is the impact of recycling this much, I wonder how much would be the adverse impact of the stuff that doesn’t get recycled on the environment!

    I love the comparison to taking cars off the road. Makes it easier to understand the impact

    We recycle a lot!! The amount of our collected recyclables compared to taking cars off the road is staggering. I'm so much more informed. Thank you Recycle bank.
