This is my entry for Paper & PlasticÂ – I bet this one is pretty obvious – I bet you can guess which trash is paper and which is plastic!Â I hope you like it!! Here are the entries for last week’s Partial / Whole. Anyone can join in, and I hope you give it a try!! We would love more people playing with us! Details are at this link above.

To state the obvious, it makes a difference whether we use paper or plastic in our lives.Â This is where the the recycling has gone and you can see how the paper has started to decompose but the plastic stays as bright and perky as ever! Even when plastic is recycled, it is better for the environment to reduce our usage of plastic.Â The slogan is Reduce first and foremost, Reuse is the next best thing and Recycle when you can’t do the first too. So let’s all reduce as much as we can.
Every time we make choices about what to buy at the store – includingÂ how it is packaged -Â makes an impact on the environment as you can see from this image. Plastic stays around for a long, long time. The more we can reduce in excess packaging the better – many of us know often the packaging takes up more room than the item itself!Â Let’s all work together to make this earth healthier for us all!Â Thanks for coming by!
