Over the long Labor Day weekend, we found ourselves carrying around a number of plastic bottles, cups, and utensils. Normally we try to avoid such things--but out at a family picnic, ice-cold bottled water abounded, and a surprise visit to the coffee shop left us with a couple of iced java drinks packed in plastic.
There was no way around it, so....
We'd stop short of the trash can and, since everywhere we found ourselves was void of a recycling bin, pack the plastics back home. There were only a few snickers from the family, and we were even asked by one family member to help set up their recycling the next time we're in town. So there's progress, right?
What do you do when recycling isn't an option?
