Resources: Recycling

“Going green” is a hot, and at times, an overwhelmingly broad topic. For my money, recycling is the 2nd easiest thing you can do to make your household more eco-friendly (the first is taking reusable bags to the store). Here are a few handy resources to help you start, or refine, your recycling efforts.

Now, go forth and recycle!
