Kitchen Recyclables

When it comes to going green, we sometimes forget the most basic and necessary things. Recycling, for instance.

Why is recycling important? Because it reduces waste. Because it takes less energy to create new materials from recycled ones than it does to create them from raw materials. And because it reduces pollution, the kind that comes from landfill runoff or burning trash.

And it’s always surprising to see the amount of things you actually can recycle. Here are ten recyclable things probably in your fridge right now:

Cartons

 

Yogurt and butter tubs

Produce bags

 
Condiments and salad dressing bottles

 

Food scraps

 

Berry baskets and boxes

 

Squeezable bottles

 

Water filters


Six-pack rings


Plastic shakers

That just about covers it. What else do you recycle from your kitchen? Share with us in a comment below!
