Speaking of recycling, I was inspired last night by a chore I do once a month- bottle return. Although I live in RI for work and school, I am from CT. While RI does not have bottle return, CT does. So once a month I bring home all my cans and bottles to recycle them. The best part? You get back 5 cents for every bottle returned. This may not seem like much, but after awhile, it adds up.
And who doesn't like making back some money? That's right- you pay for your cans and bottles when you buy your beverages! However, bottle return is a way to make it seem like that tax never happened. AND you are helping the environment! I'd say this is a win-win.
