Same here, and I love it!

We have two 13 gallon trash cans in the kitchen. I marked one with the recycle symbol on top, and all recycle items go in there together (our town picks them up every two weeks in one bin they provided) except aluminum cans. Our boys save those for the extra money since we have paying a recycle center a few blocks from here

Like others have said, I can't imagine tossing recyclable goods in with regular trash, and reallly, it bugs me when I see the neighbors do it! LOL, it's such a small thing you can do to help out in the big picture.

I feel the same about reusable bags. We reused our grocery bags before it was "cool" I'd buy the heavy plastic ones for 10 cents each (years ago!) or the canvas book bags and use them over and over. I LOVED it when the cloth type started showing up everywhere!

There are so many teeny tiny things each of us could do EVERY DAY to help......insignificant things in our daily lives that add up to a big difference IMO. I don't consider myself a "hippy" (as my son lovingly teases me about, LOL) or anything like that, but come on.......somethings are not only good for the planet, they are GREAT for your pocket
