green your spring ~ recycling (and a giveaway) is a beautiful thing!

 

It’s true, we have a problem.

If I had a mountain spring in my backyard where I could simply fill my cup with great tasting- healthy water, I would.
But I don’t.
and you probably don’t either.

We all have re-usable water bottles and we do use them, just not 100% of the time. We can’t completely avoid plastic containers unless we live in a bubble, but it would probably be made out of plastic too!  So what are we to do?

1. reduce the number of plastics you buy
2. re-use those plastic bottles when you can
3.  and when you can’t re-use them, RECYCLE them!

Sure you have heard this before and sure it sounds totally boring, but it’s not. Do you know what happens when you recycle that bottle? Watch the video to see how your little bottle can continue on in a useful way.

Recycling is one of the easiest and most beneficial ways we can all help the environment. Sadly, only about 30% of PET plastic bottles get recycled. For recycling to work, we all have to do our part.

Unfortunately, not all plastic bottles are made with recycled plastic. It’s Arrowheads goal to continue increasing the use of recycled materials in their bottles, but they need everyone’s help. Currently, there isn’t enough recycled plastic available for Arrowhead to make 100% rPET bottles.

Make recycling a part of your family’s routine.

and because giving one of these awesome Wooly Living Wall Planters away also gives me an excuse to get one for myself , let’s get the giveaway started! Now you see how cool and beautiful recycling really can be, these Wooly pockets and planters are made from recycled water bottles.

Melinda - I love to recycle in as many ways as I can. Thrift, consignment and architectural salvage stores for clothes and housewares, newspapers go into the garden beds and are made into pots for seedlings, veggie leftovers become compost.
