that’s a great suggestion. It’s nice to have a “tangible” incentive.

At the end of the year, take that “free” money and spend it on something special. I like to use windfalls like that for some of my favorite charities … recycling in one of my favorite ways!

Here, the City of Mission Viejo is working hard to do that. We have distributed 3 reusable large shopping bags to every city employee and it is nice to see them being used in local grocery stores and other places. We have established household battery recycling collection points at all city buildings including city hall, the library, the senior center, the recreation and fitness centers and the animal services center. Once every four months there is an electronic waste roundup at the city hall parking lot or at one of the city facilities. We also do most of our records keeping and employee communications by computer email instead of hard copy. We have just started programs to recycle food waste, and medical waste. I also am a member of the Board of Directors of a condo association here and with the help of the city and the city’s waste hauler we set up our first recycling program at the complex which includes special recycling dumpsters at each dumpster pad and the distribution to each unit of a strong reusable bag to take recyclables from the units to the recycle dumpsters. Mission Viejo has been ranked number 7 among cities in the country for its environmental programs and level of continuing and growing public participation in them. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

I love hearing from Florence and armansyahardanis and others who are so close to the earth. We need your wisdom very on what is truly important much. By the way, I’ve been wearing my clothes longer between washes, other than socks and briefs that is.
