7 Recyclables You Can Also Reuse

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle—remember?

While I get a variety of reactions to the fact that I work in the environmental space, one I hear more often than most is “Oh, yeah… we recycle!” I always make sure to respond positively—our recycling rates could still use a lot of work—but I almost always cringe a little internally, too.

I'm Not as Cool as I Thought I Was Last Week

It’s true — my coolness has been completely botched.

I’ve always loved shopping at thrift stores. I’ve purchased a few new things in my life, however the main focus has always been on second-hand. I love finding that diamond in the rough, and you can’t beat the price. Most importantly though, I’ve always seen it as an under-acknowledged form of recycling and I feel good knowing I’m not contributing to new clothes being made.
