Ways I Prolong the Environment, #2

I try to recycle. [Note: I use the word try.] That means that if a recycling bin is within walking distance and I have knowledge of it location, that I would go through the trouble of putting an empty bottle into the recycling bin.

If, however, a recycling bin is not available, then I either save the bottles in my backpack, so that I can recycle them when I do come upon a recycling bin.

I have rarely found myself complicit in the act of throwing a perfectly recycleable can or bottle into the trash. The last time I remember doing that was in London. I couldn't find any trash can! It's ridiculous. Here in the Bay Area, trash cans are EVERYWHERE. Over at London, I could walk for ten blocks and never find a single tras can!

It was very easy to find janitors on the street though, probably paid for by the government. Great Britain is a different place, huh?
