    How The Heck Do I Start Recycling Correctly?

    I wasn't too familiar on what can and can't be recycled, so I found out what we all should be doing.

    OK, so, what CAN go in our recycling bins?

    How do I know if I CAN'T recycle something?

    Plastic water bottles and soda bottles:

    Plastic bags:

    Things that come packaged in plastic:

    Plastic bathroom products:

    Right about now you're probably thinking, "Holy shit, I use so much plastic. How do I cut back?"

    But maybe you're like, "Hey, I do all that already!" Here are some ways to take going green to the NEXT level.

    To end on a not-so-overwhelming note, I'm going to leave you with two simple things. First, find out what you can and can't recycle in your area HERE. And second, check out/memorize the EPA's "Top 10 Bin" to brush up on your recycling basics.

    Happy recycling!
