I already started rinsing my recyclables, and I stopped bagging them, too. My husband and I are trying to figure out what stuff we can refuse from the beginning so we don’t even have to put stuff in the recycle bin. He loves to by disposable water bottles, but he is now considering getting some reusable ones. The visit really opened my eyes to how stuff may still end up at the landfill. So we are working on refusing—I also created an account for both of us on https://www.dmachoice.org/. Here you can opt out of junk mail. For free!
