We have easily accessible standard recycling programs. Also battery recycling, medical sharps recycling, food waste recycling, electronic waste recycling. These are well used. Recycling efforts will continue to expand this year. And many people now do use reusable shopping bags instead of the throw away plastic ones. I use the reuseable bags. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

As the highest output of biofuel and the filtering charactieristics it would make sense to plant this grass around all of the coal plants where there is abunant land. do you think the government would promote this option?

It’s impossible to enjoy the outdoors safely when the entire planet is being turned into a toxic dump. Of course, people must have their fantasies. . Mine is that people may wake up in time to recycle 100% of all their trash and waste and plan their families to reduce the human population and thus live in balance on a healing Earth.

But after knowing that bottled water is no better than tap water and the plastic waste it creates, I’ve since switched to using stainless steel water bottle to reduce waste and save money.

In fact, I’m so impressed with stainless steel bottles that I’ve put together a review of a small but respectable collection of them on my website for those who are interested to learn more:

Check them out and let me which do you like best in the comments. You can also find tips on how to take care of your stainless steel bottles on my website. Hope you like it!

I collect aluminum seals from my yogurt tubs and I’m trying to find a place where they can be recycled.

I also stopped using plastic shopping bags, converting to canvas bags, of which I have a growing collection, each with a different logo. Does anyone else on this forum collect canvas or cotton shopping bags? How about naming the various imprints?

We just stay at home to do something, include watched TV. Different by their parents, many young generation most actively to do in outdoor : jogging, outbounds, mountains climbing, camping, and the other cheap activities. They are very happy and look like hold this world. Ya, they are look interesting.

Sun exposure me everyday, because I go to the office by motorcycle.
My skins so brown, maybe black. Here, sunshine is very cheap and make the people skin are different with the other. You need the sun, but we are waste it. The Denise’s word “sunscreen” make me cries who we are, here, wasteful to use the sun.

Happy New Year 2010……!!!!!!??????
