We’ve been thinking about “doing our bit” for the environment and this year is when we’ve started.
We went out and got some tote bins to separate the recycling, located the local drop-off point and got going. It’s a pretty simple habit to get into and I was really surprised how much plastic and cardboard we threw away! I’m now only putting out two small binliners for collection on garbage day-this opposed to the two bins plus extra bags I had to haul out every Monday night.
I was also lucky enough to get a beta invite to Edenbee, a social network solely focussed on the environment. You can see how my carbon footprint is doing and look at the goals I have set.
A problem I’ve run into is no one seems to know what to do with all the recyclable plastics marked with anything but a 1 or 2. I’ve contacted the collection company, the State and left a voicemail for the City but nothing. They all think it should go somewhere but just don’t know where. If I find out I’ll post here.
So J.J.Abrams has the film he’s producing (Cloverfield) putting the internet in a tizzy again with the release of a second trailer. If you saw Beowulf over the weekend you got to see it in the cinema – If not you can see a good, clean copy at Empire Online.
