Okay, so it's no Halloween or New Year’s Eve, but since I'm a firm believer in the any-excuse-for-a-holiday philosophy, happy America Recycles Day!
While I'm sure Green Life readers are already recycling regularly (you are, aren't you?), advanced recyclers can still get in the spirit of things by figuring out how to handle something a little trickier than bottles or cans--say, batteries or computer equipment or cell phones or old fluorescent bulbs--or by brushing up on some handy recycling facts to help you convince the skeptics in your life. (Don't feel bad, we've all got 'em.)
Of course, recycling materials is only part of the solution--buying recycled products is just as important. And when they're this beautiful, clever, and inspiring, there’s really no reason to buy new.
