Recycling does not come naturally – it takes time to work its way into your daily routine. Here are some ways our team members recycle. We hope it inspires you to make recycling an important part of your day!
Francesca: I was worried about the recycling situation when I moved to NYC 6 months ago as it was easy for me to be eco-friendly when I had single-stream recycling back home in St. Louis. Luckily, I found out that my building has separate receptacles for trash, paper, and plastic so I bought color-coded trashcans off Amazon to make it easy for my roommate and I to sort our rubbish as we go. I also make it a point to do as much of m grocery shopping as I can at the Union Square Green Market and bring my own bags. In the off chance I forget my bags, I will reuse any plastic bags as trash bags later that month!
