The list goes on and on , but we could all cut back.....
Gas is now $3.49... we do not have the cheap stuff anymore!!
At my house, the paper goes out to the recycling bin which the city, I'm lucky to say, hauls away and recycles. Not every city is this advanced, I know - but we can hope.
The leftovers? Out to the mulching pile. Eveyrthing that's living was, at some point, energy from the sun. If we put what we take out of that cycle back into the cycle, Earth, Sun, and everyone seems to be pretty happy. You should see my elephant ears in the summer, and I don't pay a penny for those nasty fertilizers!!!
