Myths about recycling.

Theres many myths behind why people arent recycling.

Myth: Someone goes through the trash and pulls out the recyclables before it goes to the landfill.Anything thrown into the trash will end up in the landfill. The labor required to sort through trash after it has already been mixed is prohibitive and almost never happens. The only feasible way of separating recyclables is "source separation," meaning each person separates their trash at the time they throw it away. The only effort here is the difference between throwing trash into one bin or another.

Fact: No one is sorting what you place in your trash bag!!! Bottom line is simple. We need to start caring about the world we love in, and plan on raising our families in. I would feel horrible if I knew my children and grand kids were left to clean up, and even suffer from something so simple that I could have made a difference in. Lets not forget the basic facts. A glass jar will last thousands of years in a landfill. And styrofoam, well that NEVER goes away.
