    We have a large recycle and trash bin in our kitchen that everyone that comes over knows how to use. If they aren't sure they ask - I'm happy to teach.

    I actually use recycled glass for most of my storage, so there is no need to recycle or waste. The only thing I haven't found a way to reuse is wine bottles and my town has VERY limited recycling abilities. Any ideas?

      How to Make Bottle Lights:

      If you google the phrase "wine bottles made into," the auto fill will bring up various suggestions, like "into tables," "into glasses," etc.

    I make a constant effort not to buy products sold in glass bottles, jars, and haven't for the past year. Feels good
