Green living tips and money saving solutions about recycling.
Recycling Metal, Paper, Plastics and Glass
Having a good system to clean, organize and store your recyclables will help keep them out of the landfill. This is a guide about recycling metal, paper, plastics and glass.
Proper Disposal of Unwanted Things
Sometimes it is hard to know how to dispose of broken household items. It is best to try and find an alternative to the landfill if at all possible, especially since some things such as electronics and batteries pollute if not properly recycled.
I always save the water spikes left over from florist arrangements. Whenever I go on a nature hike, I take a bunch along in my pack. I can get my wildflowers and other finds home without worrying about them wilting.
The green movement is in full swing, and while it might be great for our planet, it might not be so great for our wallets. A growing concern involves e-cycling, recycling electronic products which seep chemical poisons into the ground beneath the dumps.
How to Recycle Wrong
Recycling relieves the environment of a burden, but can it ever be harmful? Is there a way to recycle wrong? It's not necessarily the recycling that can be incorrect; it's the steps leading up to the act of recycling that can cause more harm than good.
Bathroom Recycle Bin
In an effort to recycle even more at our house, I put a small recycling bin in our bathroom. Now we can easily recycle the tp tubes, paper tp wrappers, and any little cardboard packages that end up in the bathroom. It seems that if its easy people are more willing to recycle it. :)

Current Price for Recycling Can Tabs
Unless you have thousands of them, can tabs have very little value. If you have enough tabs they can be sold by weight for their value as aluminum. This is a guide about price for recycling can tabs.
Reusing Netted Vegetable Bags
I always save my net vegetable bags and use them for a variety of things, like a safe dish, bathroom or even body scrubber. Or a kitty toy. For some reason, kitty loves to play with them!
Recycling Dryer Lint
Even dryer lint can be recycled. I recycle it in 3 different ways.
Reuse Waste Water from Water Filter
We installed our reverse osmosis water filter ourselves and instead of having the waste water drain down into the sink and be a complete waste, we route the outlet waste pipe into a bucket/cooler to collect the waste water.
