Don’t read this post without taking the poll (pretty please). I’m super excited for this handy new everydaytrash.com feature.
Halloween, day of the dead, election day, Thanksgiving…it’s festive season in America. To add to to fun, November 15th is national America Recycles Day. Interested trashies can take a break from all those outraged, election-themed forwards and petitions to take a recycling pledge. This year the event carries the theme “it all comes back to you,” which I find amusing since the tone could be read according to your world view (TAKE THE POLL!! TAKE THE POLL!! I JUST LEARNED HOW TO INSERT ONE!!).
For the jaded and the journalists who don’t sign petitions, there’s a link to find out the details about what can be recycled in your community and where and how to do that. This is a question that I, as a garblogger, get all the time. Of course, I couldn’t get the link to work. Let me know if you figure it out. In the meantime, I’ll search for another. That shit changes all the time and it’s nice to know whether washing out the bluberry containers is worthwhile or if the city decided only plastic shaped like bottles deserves a second chance at purposeful existance.
For my local peeps, NYC will host “Green Screens” a weekend of electronic recycling events (leave a comment if you’re interested in volunteering and I’ll forward you an email request the CENYC sent out).
P.S. Please take the poll.
