No, not the three R's in the academic sense, but in the sustainability sense. I'll admit, I'm kinda stumped on this one. Recycling is cool... (I feel like I should put in a "herp derp" here).
guess I've always grown up in a recycling home. We always keep a
recycling cabinet and piles and piles of recycling ready to take to the
center (which we don't do nearly as often as we should). We also do our
best to make sure that as little of our waste goes to the landfill as
possible. The one that drives me nuts the most is probably the aluminum
cans, especially because there is one specific member of the family who
has the majority of the pop and yet the cans only get crushed when *I*
get so frustrated I can't stand it anymore!
though, I think my family is in the minority in the states. We
Americans are very wasteful, and most people feel like the little bit
they could do wouldn't make a difference. The problem then comes when
EVERYONE thinks that and is lazy about it then it adds up. I think there
is a movement to greener tendencies in the US, and I think it is
growing slowly, and I guess that's what we have to focus on.
So yeah. Recycling? It's cool.
