Lisa, I'm the boomer generation and during the fifties and sixties recycling was normal life. Milk came in glass returnable bottles and soda pop came in glass refundable bottles. Papers and magazines could be sold and generated change in a young lad's pocket. What was left was burned in the burn barrel out back and eventually ended up in the garden. Yes, we had in town gardens back then and even with chickens and rabbits. Very little stuff went to the landfill. As generations passed by our roots got farther and farther away from the rural life of our ancestors. Life became cubical flat screen busy at work and convenience became more important than food nutrition and household waste. Our family was Mom, Dad, my sister and I. We hardly ever filled one trash can with landfill waste. Today as I look up and down the street everyone has multiple trash cans waiting to be hauled away to the great dump area just outside of town. It is sad the path we have chosen to follow in the last 50 years but I see a spark of encouragement with people like your self that have desire to make a difference in this throw away society.

Have a great recycle day.

It though the article was very well written and interesting to read, I enjoyed reading Urban Farm which I purchased at Tractor Supply, looking forward to the next publication.
