We've had a few days to think about it now, so it's time to commit to your October reduce, reuse and recycle goals. Y'all know the drill by now: you can do one, two or three; you can decide that this is the month you launch two recycling projects and one reducing project ... whatever. Just jump in and inject a little scrutiny into your daily consumption and disposal habits.
As for me ... well, y'all got to me. This month, I will be reducing my dryer use by drying my towels on the wooden rack in our garage. All of you who made the arguments for line-drying have persuaded me that this is worth a look. So this month, I'll be doing an experiment to see how it works out.
I will also be reusing some old shelves I took down from our upstairs closet. These heavy, overpainted boards have been nesting in the crawl space; I plan to buy some brackets and put them up in the garage for storage ... once the garage is free of tile, our contractor's tools, etc.
As for recycling ... here I am honestly stuck. We are already recycling everything we can according to our local trash service. I guess my commitment for this month is to keep on keeping on.
Enough about me. What reduce/reuse/recycle projects are you launching into this month? Which habits are you keeping up?
