I walk around my house and see what? Plastic, plastic and more plastic. Where will it end up? The bags: In a landfill. The bottles: At a recycling center. Sure, recycling center isn't that bad but they use energy to recycle those bottles.
This is a problem that I need to fix, and so do thousands of other homes around the country. I want to decrease the consumption of plastic materials and keep as much of it out of the landfills as I possibly can.
