Tomorrow, November 15th, is America Recycles day! It's a great way to get started on your Small Acts collection. Recycling is one of the easiest Small Acts out there. Our planet's resources are not unlimited so we should make it a practice to take actions toward getting the most possible use out of them.
Remember, every act counts. So recycling a soda can, instead of throwing it in the trash, reduces the C02 that would be required to produce, process, transport and dispose of another brand new soda can. Of course, new cans are always being made, but saving that small bit of C02 is a Small Act, and it contributes positively to our collective energy bank.
All recyclable products take energy to create. The energy may come in a different form, but it is still part of our planet's collective energy. Throwing away that soda can is using that energy negatively because it's being wasted.
Without a conscious effort to take Small Acts like this we are ultimately doomed. We reap what we sow, and the planet can only sustain us on this path for so long. We are powerless to its delicate ecological and climate balance, and we will suffer its wrath if we don't start changing our habits now.
Don't preach to me, I do recycle.
I know most of you probably do recycle, so how can you take it to the next level? By sharing your small acts on Facebook, twitter, or whatever your fancy #smallactscount Hopefully, it will educate others and encourage them to start collecting their Small Acts too!
Find an America Recycles event in your area or just pass this message on and take charge of the future.
If you're in the Charlottesville, VA area stop by C'ville-ian Brewing Company to drop of your used batteries for recycling.
