In Sydney, Australia you can recycle your empty cans and bottles while also giving a donation to charity. It is a win-win idea: Residents can help their city and our Earth. ‪#‎Australia‬ ‪#‎recycling‬ ‪#‎charity‬
2 Recycling isn’t always easy, and let’s face it, sometimes an incentive helps. New machines in Sydney, Australia, let you deposit your empty cans and bottles in recycling receptacles, in exchange for a small gift ranging from a 10-cent donation to charity to a drawing for two free tickets to the Sydney New Year’s Eve Dawes Point viewing area. But what experts are actually hoping for is a more conscious public when it comes to recyclables. A Boos...

We found a shop full of really unique, #ecofriendly   designs that convey a #heartfelt message to the wearer.

0 I’m a complete jewelry addict. Just ask any of my friends; I always have something new around my wrists or dangling from my ears. I have my fair share of purely decorative trinkets—a company party with my man is always an excuse for a new dress and some killer earrings—but it’s the treasures that I have an emotional connection to that mean the most. When I just happened to come across Show the Love the other day and found a shop full of really ...

We hope you have a safe and eco-friendly Fourth of July this Friday!
0 I know what you’re already thinking: I’m here to ruin your Fourth of July celebration. Not so, fair reader. You know I’m the nice one (my cohorts never let us forget it) and the nice one doesn’t set out to ruin things for you…other than cheeseburgers. There’s really no way I’d ruin your Independence Day festivities. I love the holiday. Not only do we get to celebrate our independence, we also get to blow stuff up. Because ‘Murica. I’m sure I’m ...

#Recycling plastic milk containers is the norm, but did you know you can recycle the #milk and creamer #cartons also? We can help you know where!
http://www.earth911.com/inspiration/programs-initiatives/carton-recycling-access-reaches-50-across-u-s/
2 If you look around your local grocery store today, you’ll notice products you purchase are available in cartons — from the soups and broths on shelves to the milk, juice and creamers in the refrigerated section. Cartons are made primarily from a renewable resource, are lightweight and compact in design, and have a low carbon footprint. As a result, the sustainable packaging solution is increasing in use for a variety of liquid and food products...

Schools hold recycling drives for them. The phone book is still a useful resource. But do we still need to receive as many as we do? #initiatives  
0 Just like every page that’s ever rolled off the printing presses, every phone book has a story to tell. The first phone book debuted in 1878 as a simple cardboard printout of 50 local businesses that owned a phone line in New Haven, Conn. Over the years, phone books have given dialers a much-needed boost, providing their recipients with a tangible tool for finding long-lost friends, searching out reputable businesses, and even acting as a liter...

Nope.  Don't want any, but they keep dropping them off.

0 I’m what you would call a “digital nomad.” This is my glorified way of saying I’m a rolling stone. I’m always on the move – but wherever I go I make sure there’s access to technology. And with that said, you know I’ve never taken a road trip where I haven’t had to stop and get something to eat, preferably with an Internet connection included. I’ve always had this habit of holding my gas and food stops for Panera Bread. Panera features warm colo...

#Scrapmetal #theft is a growing problem. The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), which represents 1,600 recycling companies, is working to help law enforcement combat this. When #police and business owners better understand each other, they can more successfully work together to catch and prosecute thieves.
0 With the rise of scrap metal prices over the past decade, thieves have gotten desperate — and their actions cause consequences for far more than just themselves. Consider a man in Arizona found in an abandoned commercial yard with burns covering 100 percent of his body — his attempt to steal copper from a transformer cut power to 1,400 customers. Or a group of men in New Jersey stealing a truck’s worth of catalytic converters, chased by police ...

Ever wondered how to clean up #cleaning products? It's best to use them up, but if you can't do that, we dug up answers from American Cleaning Institute on the optimal methods of disposal.
0 Sometimes cleaning products have to be cleaned out, too. What’s the best way to do so? Some people assume cleaning products need to be disposed of with unused paint, oil and other similar items through your city’s hazardous waste collection program. The truth is, though, in most cases household cleaning products don’t need this kind of special treatment. You do need to follow instructions, but doing so should be pretty easy. Let’s take a look a...
