Goody Green: Recycling Bags

These recycling bags are the best. No, really. If ever there was a green product that you should immediately add to your shopping list, this is it. These extra-large, waterproof bags ($18 for a set of 4 at crateandbarrel.com) will not only help you recycle more efficiently, they’ll make lugging your bottles, cans, newspapers and clippings to the curb a whole lot easier. (So easy, in fact, that I’ve been using them to tote my groceries home from the store – 5lb bags of potatoes and all – for over a year. Wear and tear? Not even a visible stretch where the handles meet the bag!)

Each bag is a different color and has an image of what to place inside on the front (gray is for metal, green is for organic materials, and so on), which makes teaching your kids where to place the milk jugs opposed to the cardboard cereal boxes a cinch. Line them up in your garage or mud room using the Velcro connector tabs and let the recycling begin!

    My wife and I talk about this all the time but we can never agree on it. She use to think we could not talk about it without yelling. We actually disagree on most things anyway so this was really nothing different. I am an author for vehicle warranty review and she`s always giving her 2 cents in and wants me too put her point of view in my posts and when I don`t I`m being a typical male or so she says.
