It's Easy, Do Your Part!

I recently read these disturbing statistics;

• The US produces 250 million tons of trash each year
• The average person produces approximately 5 lbs. of trash per day
• The top littered item in the US is cigarette butts

It made me wonder why they are so high. If each of us made a little bit of effort we could greatly reduce these statistics. Making a few changes like recycling, using reusable bags and not littering could make a huge impact. Here are some fun, handmade solution based items to help you lessen your contribution to these statistics.

Thanks for sharing...I use reusable bags for my shopping & I try to recycle/upcycle items when I do some of my craft projects
