SBC - Day 31 - What I Do

BC: I've joined in the Summer Blog Challenge, hosted by Going Green with the Grizls, to blog every day from June 1st - August 31st! Crazy right? There are over 50 blogs participating and we all have different reasons on why we are doing this challenge. Really a way to interact with YOU! So feel free to join in the Challenge if you are a blogger or add your two cents if you love my blog!




Day 31: Something Eco-Friendly you already do...
 
 
  We RECYCLE!


We don't recycle everything. A few things that we do recycle are aluminum cans and newspapers. 

But why recycle? I have always wondered, before we recycled, why recycle. I don't know anyone else who recycles, and would it make a difference? Well, I found lots of information that listed benefits of recycling. Here is just some information from Earth911.com.
 
Environmental Benefits:
  • Recycling aluminum cans saves precious natural resources, energy, time and money – all for a good cause – helping out the earth, as well as the economy and local communities.
  • Aluminum cans are unique in that in 60 days a can is recycled, turned into a new can & back on store shelves.
  • Aluminum is a sustainable metal and can be recycled over and over again.
  • In 2003, 54 billion cans were recycled, saving the energy equivalent of 15 million barrels of crude oil – America’s entire gas consumption for one day.

So, I thought to myself, even if I feel like I'm all alone in recycling... when you add us all up, it does make a huge difference. I even remember when I saw one of the new documentaries (I think it was "Bag It") they even"Reuse" their plastic bottles and people get rewarded for turning in their used bottles and they go back on the shelf's! I think it was overseas. That is a fab idea!
