Recycling Gripe

Recycling Gripe

I went to a “social” friend’s house, basically a friend of a friend. They were doing their part to reduce carbon footprints, according to them.

Recycling Gripe

They were burning all their paper products in a burn barrel, I was aghast to think they honestly thought they were doing the world a favor. Biting my tongue I decided to do a little educating on the matter.

I tried to explain yes, they are keeping it out of the landfills, BUT, let’s face it paper does break down its not a major landfill concern, that’s plastic. BUT, I tried to explain to them, but not actually recycling it, they are not helping with the reduction of tree’s being cut down for the need for people to have paper products.

I swear this woman just didn’t understand what I was trying to say, they truly believed burning was recycling!!!

All in all, sorry for all the lack of posts lately, we have been overly busy here getting things ready for the planting season. 


  1. I’ve never heard that before!! I can’t believe people would do something like this and think they were helping.

    I’m glad you tried to help their minds.

    apparently we need lots more educating on the matter.

  2. Haha! It amazes me the way people think!
