Political Waste

During the most recent election I was reminded of the colossal waste that occurs from politicians running for office. Everything from flyers to lawn signs end up as trash. Think of how many times you were handed a flyer or found one stuck to your car during not only the most recent election, but past elections as well.

Living the Green Life

As long as I can remember, I've been living green in some sense of the term. It started as a teen in Minnesota when our neighborhood implemented a recycling program for newspaper and paper.
