A Remember to Recycle Lesson

recycling
Elizabeth’s 10-year old son, Evan, is very much into recycling, especially after watching a few documentaries recently on the state of our planet.
So he took it upon himself to make this sign for the WeatherExtreme offices to post over the recycling bin. He recently changed batteries in his Xbox controller that we keep here at the office for days when he misses school for some reason and he was going to throw them away and realized he did not know if they went into the recycling bin or not. So he looked it up and created this sign of no-no’s for recycling here. On top of it, he then realized that we do not have a separate recycling bin here at the offices as the trash company hired by the office building managers do not separate out the trash but take it all in one big lump. Evan was horrified to find this out. He now insists on putting all appropriate recycling in a separate blue trash bag that we place next to the trash dumpster in hopes it gets recycled.
My next job, to find out if this “blue bag” will be recycled or not. If not, I guess it means I will be taking all of our office recycling to my house for proper recycling pick up.

Ironically it took a 10-year old for the WeatherExtreme gang to take care of this problem. We are all so busy we just never got around to it (thought we “talked” about it at times).

Lesson Learned!

Thanks Evan!
