25 ways to go green and save greenI'm changing my blog to talk bout something that is important to me and my family: recycling.

My mom has always been a advocate of recycling. She enjoys/embraces people calling her a tree hugger and making remarks to her bout being one. Heck she even calls herself one.

 At my house if you throw something away that can be recycled, you are in for a lecture bout my kid's, kid's kids. Yes, my great-grand kids and so on. That the earth needs to be cared for, that it is a living thing, that it be around if we continue on the same path as we are. My mom always brings home things that can be recycled when she is gone away.

Why Should I Recycle?
