"Going green"...."ecycle"....."reduce, reuse, recycle"....ahhhh...the "buzz" words of today's society. I know that it is very important to do this. So, if it is so important, why oh why can't my smalltown make it EASIER!!!!
Take today, for instance. I have my newspapers all ready to be picked up by our "recycling truck." Now, keep in mind, my smalltown's recycling truck is a pickup truck, driven by smalltown employees, and it is pulling a flatbed thing-a-ma-jig contraption that they load the recycled materials on. I can never, ever remember what Monday they come. I'll put it on my calendar and yet, I always seems to miss the pickup. Today is no exception. I was sitting here, typing away, thinking that next week is the pickup.
Nope. I was wrong...
TODAY was the pickup. I have nothing set out and the truck-with-the-thing-a-ma-jig just goes on by.
Now that stuff gets to sit on my concrete-slab-of-a-driveway another 2 weeks.
Soooo....how are your efforts at recycling going??!! :)
On another note:
I am getting very interested in going totally "green" with my cleaning supplies. Yes, I absolutely love my cleaners and sprays and scrubby-dub-dub items, but for some reason, this idea just won't leave my mind. So, here is my question to all of you readers:
What all-natural cleaners do you use? Do you purchase them or make them yourself, and
Do any of them work effectively on hard water "soap scum" that sticks like CEMENT to the tub?
I look forward to hearing all of your wise answers!! :)
