  • Thank you for this article, Patty. It is such a dissappointment to see the waste we create, and, in my opinion, such disrespect for the earth. We can reuse so many things that we toss. I live by the mantra, “Waste not, want not.”

  • Awesome, hoosierma!

    If a person were to observe their "trail of trash", or see it piled up all at once, they may be quite surprised at the size!

    Recent advances have created easily biodegradeable utensils, tableware and drinking straws and it would be nice to see a fast food entity make the switch. For now, they are more expensive to use, but I think most fast food places could sacrifice a little profit for the sake of humanity

  • I have recently been buying the canvas bags I love them! I have found many uses for them not only are they good in my vehicle for my groceries, they are good for laundry! I have to go down steps to my washer and dryer and the bags are much easier to tote than my baskets! thank you for this article! I agree surely if more would do this we really could be Midwest's recycling capital of the country!

  • Thanks, Common sense! I use a canvas carry-bag every day to lug around all the stuff I need to have when working, like camera, iPad, snacks and other assorted things. Since I've amassed about twenty of the darn things, I'm ready for any size shopping trip, and you're right, they are great for laundry!

    Thanks for reading!
