In this world of hyper consumerism it is time to stop and really think about if you always need the latest and greatest - anything.
Reduce! Reuse! Recycle! Repurpose!
Guess that's why I love junkin' so much. It's already been made and resources have been used. Why put it in the dump??? Recycling has been 2nd nature to me since I can remember and has been ingrained in my children's minds. Don't get me wrong, we're not extremists but also not shy about bringing home recyclable materials (ie juice cans, pop cans, newspaper) that we purchase when out and about. Just because an establishment doesn't provide recycling doesn't mean it needs to go in to the trash. That, and planing errands for one day a week to reduce gas, before it was even fashionable to do so when gas prices went up to $4.00 a gallon.
In the words of Bill Cosby, "Come on people!"
EVERY single thing helps!
