It would be nice if we all carried every recyclable item straight out to the blue bins the the garage, but not likely. Laziness often takes over and it ends up in the trash and therefore a landfill. Easy solution, an in-house recycling center. One for paper and one for plastic and glass. This is a great way to minimize your trash and maximize your recycling. I used to have a wire basket on my counter that we would fill up and take out at the end of the day, definitely not a clutter free option. Recently during a trip to Ikea I picked up these great bins that stack. I bought two and printed off signs to designate paper and plastic. When the bins get full the kids take them out to the garage and empty them into the blue bins. If space is an issue keeping two cans under the sink is an option as well.
"How can we discover our Sacred Space? Shouldn't our home be a place of peace and tranquility? How can we find balance amongst the chaos of kids, jobs, cooking, and cleaning without taking time away from our family. Sacred Spaces is a holistic approach to organizing through clearing clutter, creating an earth friendly environment, and discovering your Sacred Space. Through my business, I share with others ways I have found balance while raising 3 children, teaching yoga, keeping house, and starting a business. We will work together in your home to decide what is useful & or celebrates you and what is holding you back ie. clutter. I hope creating this blog will provide a forum so we all can find our Sacred Space and simplify our lives so we spend more time living!"
