It seems like only yesterday I was telling you about my Karma Yoga Project. And, today I will be wrapping up November, Karma Wednesdays with the reminder to recycle.
- Reduces waste in landfills
- Conserves natural resources
- Helps prevent pollution
- Saves energy
- Reduces greenhouse gas emissions
- Helps sustain the environment
- Helps create new jobs
For those of you New Yorkers, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has a handy site re: New York City’s Residential Recycling Program. Check it out if you have any questions on what you can and can’t recycle, etc. Not only does recycling help the environment, it also cuts costs for the city!
Think twice before throwing that water bottle or aluminum can in the trash. Reuse plastic grocery bags to bring lunch into work – better yet, bring canvas bags to do your grocery shopping. Recycle those newspapers – or download them on your tablet instead. There are so many ways you can do your part.
Karma Wednesdays might be over, but check out how you can help in your community – from volunteering at a local shelter or nursing home to something as simple as picking up litter you see while walking.
How do you help in your community?
