One little fact about me, is that I'm quite the recycler. I try to be as environmentally conscious as I possibly can by recycling, reusing and being responsible with energy. The sound of water running and being wasted is like nails on a chalkboard for me, the sight of someone brushing their teeth while the faucet is running is like watching a horror movie! It's been said that only half of Americans recycle daily. I definitely don't belong to that half of Americans. In fact my recyclables take up a good amount of floor space in our kitchen, which thoroughly annoys Matt. Somehow he always manages to kick over a pile of empty milk jugs at 2am, and that pirate ship we built for Mally's birthday has taken his car's space in the garage for the past 2 months now because, "I'm waiting to recycle it." This morning, we finally gathered all of it together and made a trip to the recycling plant. Although, my floor may not see the light of day for very long, at least we know our household is doing what we can to help preserve our planet. To learn more on recycling, head over to Earth911.com
