My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

recycle Blog Prompt - It's America Recycles Day. How do you recycle in your home?

Our city used to have a recycling service pick up our recycling every week but I guess it wasn’t cost efficient for them. We had a box for our cans, bottles and papers which I thought was wonderful. Since they have done away with them, I try to recycle as much as I can. I actually use my aluminum cans at the bottom of deep flower pots to take up space. My annuals don’t usually have deep roots and don’t need soil to go all the way to the bottom of the pot so this helps me use less soil and makes the pot lighter to move. All of my paper and food scraps go into my worm bin. I use the compost (worm poop) in my flower beds in the spring to fertilize my plants which I think has really helped them do better than any artificial fertilizer. There isn’t a recycling center close to our home so that is the best I can do right now.
