Mindfulness and the recycling bin

Each place has its own recycling system, but most differ from the United States - separate everything seems to be a motto. When recycling is separated well, it is less contaminated, meaning more can actually be recycled when sorting happens.

So if you have just been dumping everything into your bin straight after use, give it a mindful once-over. I'm going to gently rinse my ice cream boxes, scrape out peanut butter jars, bag my paper bits, and generally be a little more careful about what goes in the blue bin. This makes a good opportunity to see what is coming in and going out as well. The family will have to play along, too!
