Saving the earth one banana at a time
I realize that saving my cans is a little OCD -- but I figure it's good for the environment, and it doesn't take much extra effort.
A few days ago I took this concern for the environment to the next level: I have a stash of plastic containers at work. Whenever I -- or my co-workers! -- have fruit peelings or cores, I take them home. Most of the things get composted (blue lid); the ones that the chickens like (e.g. apple cores) go to the chickens.
As with recycling, it's good for the environment -- and it doesn't take much extra effort.
