Green Tip of The Day

Recycle your plastic bags. While it’s best to avoid plastic as much as you can, it’s inevitable that you’ll end up with some plastic bags and packaging. Plastic bag recycling is becoming more widely available, so at least you don't have to toss those items in the trash. Drop off bins can be found at several major retailers, including many grocery chains, JC Penney, Lowes, and Wal-Mart. They accept not only plastic grocery bags, but plastic retail bags, paper towel and toilet paper plastic wrap, plastic newspaper bags, plastic dry cleaning bags, bread bags, produce bags, sandwich bags, and any clear bags labeled with a #2 or #4 recycling code as well. You just have to make sure they are clean and dry. Visit plasticbagrecycling.org for drop off locations in your area.
