Old is New

IMG_8865

We may as well categorize every month as Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, because we’re big fans of all three. Well…sort of. One family member is really into reducing, while two of us prefer reusing. We’re all cool with recycling, although we could probably stand to recycle even more than we do now.

One of our goals for April is to investigate what happens to our recycled materials and trash. I participated in the Denver Urban Gardens master composter training about eight years ago, and we had the chance to tour a recycling plant and a landfill. I’m hoping that Sam will be able to visit both places this month – I still have to check on the minimum age requirement for visitors, and whether we’d have to be part of a larger group to visit both locations.

I’m excited to be starting on this project path. Do you have any ideas about these topics, that you’d like to talk about this month?

  1. The March 2013 Yoga Journal has an article on yogic wisdom for decluttering your life. You can read it here: http://www.yogajournal.com/lifestyle/3197 Very helpful for sorting out what’s important and what’s not and breathing into daily decisions. (I don’t know about getting rid of the TV just yet. Maybe someday.)
