Thought you might be interested Thursday: Recycling

CITYLAB's You're Probably Recycling Wrong delivers more than a slap on the wrist.   Author Vicky Gan explains the mistakes we make and how to stop making them.   It's a quick and easy read.   Above all, it's helpful and worthwhile.

Tips include recycling those pesky plastic shopping bags at grocery stores, putting small bits of paper in a paper bag, stapling it (and several more simple steps), not dumping plastic-coated paper cups in recycling bins, among others.

Summer program people, these simple how-to's would make an easy and useful addition to your already-planned summer programming.   Start with your trash and recycling at your organization and encourage young people to sort properly and toss what is not acceptable.
