There is a lot of talk about recycling and awareness of environmental issues is certainly higher than it was a decade ago. But many think that there is little difference between throwing something in the garbage can or the recycling bin.
A hotel in Yellowstone National Park took the extra step to help its patrons understand the difference. Instead of just one trash container, they offered six slots: glass, paper, plastic, metal, compost and one more.
Even if your trash can isn’t labeled as such, think about the ultimate destination of its contents the next time you shoot a piece of recyclable paper into its hoop.
