Eco-Tip: Transport Recyclables in Reusable Totes

If you're like me, you take groceries home from the supermarket in reusable totes. This can be problematic sometimes, because what exactly are you supposed to throw away trash and recyclables in? While I dump the garbage in a disposal bag, I've started toting my recyclables to and from the recycling bin in my building with reusable totes. Most recyclables items — egg cartons, plastic water bottles, aluminum cans, magazines, etc. — aren't soiled, so you don't even have to worry about washing the tote. It's just one more way to live an environmentally-friendly lifestyle!
