Baby boomers are now embracing ways to leave an imprint on the environment, and it's about time.

If something is labeled as a plastic #1 or #2, it can be recycled virtually eveywhere. This is great news if you’re trying to reduce your impact and waste. We can all help close the loop by buying and recycling products made from these materials - every little bit helps.

To help out, here is a neat list of items you can recycle.

I do recycle my #1 and #2 plastics, but I'd like to see a detailed energy analysis of how much energy the collection trucks, reprocessing, &c. really takes. I agree with Scott when it comes to reuse, though. I've got a zillion glass & plastic jars (baby food, pickles, spaghetti sauce, &c.) that get used for screws, paint thinner, &c. and never make it to the recycle bin for that reason.

I am of the opinion that recycling metals, paper, and very few plastics does help. It helps the bank account and efficiency of the company engaging in it. Recycling never had to do with environmentalism. It has to do with efficiency and cost reduction.

I'll just go get my Target cart and "wet floor" sign...

I would think that "everyday" items would be things that the general public would have in their house. Not things they would have to steal in order to recycle!
