Why do I love this bin? Several reasons:
1. The message on the top reads: "Someday everything will be recyclable. Until then, let's sort it out together. Thanks." Powerful stuff!
2. It has "landfill" printed on it rather than "trash". That may not seem like a big deal but I think it is huge psychologically. When we place something in a bin labeled landfill, I think you are immediately reminded that what you are throwing away is going to sit in a landfill for eternity. It may make some think twice and recycle it or next time select different products with recyclable containers.
3. The bin is easy and has simple usability. It lists exactly what can be recycled. It requires little thought...which is what you want when it comes to recycling. The easier the better.
Thanks to Starbucks for stepping up and being more environmentally focused. And thanks to Stacie Stubbendick for inspiring Dale and I to care more about the environment too because before this was just a recycling/trash bin. Now it is a reflection of our future.
