Recycle, Recycle, Recycle! - If you don't already do it, learn why you should.

I'm all for recycling. Plastic, cardboard, paper, glass. You name it. There's nothing that makes me feel better than when people recycle stuff that they no longer want/need. I mean, I get queasy just seeing a person curl paper into a ball and just toss it into a bin like it's nothing! If there's one thing among the many things I can't stand in this world it's wasting!!!! If you can't finish something, then for the love of it don't take more than you can finish. That's called being greedy, and there's nothing I hate more than greediness.

I hate it when a person talks about a laptop like it didn't take ages for someone to work for the elements used to put it together (never mind the fact that there are factories that produce them now, but the elements used still have a source), and how they're just going to smash it before the contract runs out so they can get a new one. Seriously?!!! I'm not bragging, but I've had one laptop for 4 1/2 years and it's still working just fine; never had a problem with it, never treated it badly (except for when it has accidentally fallen on the ground.... about 7 times counting ^_^).

My point is that you are just doing those around you, including yourself, a favour when you treat things just with a little more respect; and I feel recycling is one way to show that you appreciate nature and that you'r'e not just one of those wasters who couldn't care less what it is you're wasting.

How would you like it if you spent hours or even days for example moulding a vase out of clay and someone came and smashed it the instant it had dried? - I'm pretty sure that a lot of people would go mad beyond their limits if something like that ever happened to them. It doesn't even have to be that they had spent hours or days moulding a vase of clay, but just anything they had basically spent hours doing: Like writing a document of 20 pages only to have someone delete it all in a second without any chances of being able to recover the file? How would you feel about something like that?

It might not be too important when it's not you, but once it is it becomes a whole different story.  You may not think recycling goes a long way, but it actually does - and it goes a longer way with someone who is determined and sort of 'disciplined'.

Recycle people! Recycle...
