My Green Wake Up Call
In London, we had weekly recycling pickup every 8 days. My home there had an access door from the kitchen to the garage so I could throw away empty containers right away and it would be out of sight until the 8th day when it would go to the curb for recycling.
When I moved back to Sarnia 18 months ago, my home did not have a door to the garage. Being a bachelor, I would leave cans on the counter in the corner of the kitchen ready to go to the garage at some point. Because Sarnia only has bi-weekly recycling collection, sometimes, embarrassingly, the cans, bottles, jars, and boxes would pile up for 2 weeks before I would take them to the blue box. This made the food packaging and single-use plastics problem impossible to ignore. Meeting Lisa and Melissa opened my eyes to the alternatives.
