Online Resources

Since this is my first week posting, I will post everyday. After I will commit to post one time per week.

I started having a passion for recycling long before I can remember. To start I will catch you up on what I already know. After that, I will be sharing my waste free journey and telling you the important information as I go.

First, I will give you some online resources.

Essex-Windsor Solid Waste Authority (EWSWA) has a website and a Facebook page and waiting to be used!

There is also a feature on EWSWA website that helps you find out where certain items go. It is helpful and easy to use! http://www.ewswa.org/what-goes-where/

When I cannot find what I am looking for on the website, this is what I do:

I have an ongoing Facebook message with EWSWA. I send them pictures AT LEAST once a month asking “red or blue bin” and they answer me ASAP with a helpful answer every time! I encourage you to do the same, and let me know what you learn!

Recycle Quiz

Lastly, my fav is this recycle quiz! I take it once about every two months. I like to know my progress. I used to be a 74 and now I am in the 80s! This quiz is easy and directly related to Windsor’s recycling! Take the quiz and post your score! I especially like the quiz because at the end it tells you where you went wrong and how to correct your recycling habits!

Lauren Singer and Trash is for Tossers

My inspiration for this blog comes from Lauren Singer who is the author of the blog Trash is for Tossers, and the founder of an organic cleaning company The Simply Co. 

Lauren Singer’s blog is where I started getting all of my ideas for becoming waste free, before I started focusing more closely on Windsor’s recycling system. She has so many good ideas and I would highly recommend taking at look through all of her websites. She also has MANY youtube videos that are really helpful–which I will get into later.

Happy Recycling!

Let’s be like these kids. ˅˅˅˅˅˅
