A co-worker just sent me this video. Whether you’re choosing to buy organic or trying to figure out what you can do to become a “greener” individual, there are a number of steps you can take to make the world a healthier, more sustainable place for us all.

Have you heard of flash mobs? Flash mobs are when a coordinated group of people blend into large crowds, like in a food court at the mall, and then simultaneously react to something happening or perform some sort of routine.

Some Interesting Facts About Recycling

  • Recycling has never been so easy. In many American cities, you don’t even need to separate the paper from the plastic. There is a common bin that is then sorted at the recycling plant.
  • Did you know the plastic shopping bags at your grocery stores are recyclable? Just look for the chasing arrows symbol. Many major grocery stores have drop-offs where you can recycle these. You can even take your efforts one step further and purchase reusable shopping bags.
  • According to the Beverage Marketing Corp, the average American consumed 1.6 gallons of bottled water in 1976. In 2006, that number jumped to 28.3 gallons. It’s great we are drinking more water, but we should either recycle these bottles or purchase reusable BPA-free water bottles.
  • Did you know about 80 million Hershey Kisses are made and wrapped with aluminum foil everyday? If you laid all that aluminum out flat, it would cover about 60 football fields each day. All this aluminum IS recyclable and many people simply throw it away.

In the office, we posted signs near all the recycling bins to remind everyone here at Aidance Skincare what is recyclable and what is trash. What sorts of things does your school, workplace or home do to encourage recycling?
