Earth Day and Carbon Neutral Blog


I is supposing you knows it be Earf Day today. Akshually in our house it be Earf Day every day. Mom is rilly big on doing green stuffs. Like for the past 20 years hers has used reusable grocery bags and now also keeps a bag in hers purse, uses mesh froot and veggie bags and never brings home icky plastik bags wot we always see hanging from trees when we is out hiking. Here is why plastik bags be so noggty. But we still gets plastik bags from so many udder things like wot bred comes in, plastik envelopes and bags in the mail, wot hooman litter box paper comes in, stuff like that. We founded out on Earf Day last year that those can be recykled. Yes, they can! Rite in the bins that the noms stores has to recycle their icky plastik bags wot we never has any of to put in there!

So when mom gets reddy to go shopping for noms, she put her shopping bags on the kitchun table wif her nom list and all of the plastik bags and wrappers wadded into one of the bags. Then when she leaves, efurrything is there for her to grab so she not be furgetting nuttin and she drops the plastik bags in the recycle bin on hers way into the nom store. So just an ideer I is passing along wot you mite want to suggest to your hoomans for Earf Day. Click here for more informashuns about it and to check if'n your nom store participates.

Wow -- I never thought about the plastic sacks for bread and stuff! Very cool that you can recycle them with the other bags.

Of course Mom uses those other plastic bags for poop sometimes...

Your mom is doing a great job of trying to save the earth. We recycle too and try to be very mindful of what is thrown away. Good post - lots of ideas.

You guys are packed full of really good info today! We never knew (or thought about) being able to recycle other kinds of plastic bags like bread bags, etc. You have really motivated us. We have a ton of plastic grocery bags (although we do use the cloth bags too) under the sink to reuse. We mainly use them for Simba and my litter box poos. However, we have sooo many that I'm going to have Mama take them to the store for recycle. We will also start saving the other kinds of plastic bags to recycle too. That web site was very informative on how plastic bags are recycled. We always wondered what they're recycled in to exactly. Cool post!
