Now that's good stewardship

You know. Whatever.

Now that's good stewardship

This was reported in the "Life in the Cheap Lane" feature in the November issue of Smartmoney magazine:

"and a woman who physically transported one soft-drink can 4,800 miles from the nation's capital to her Hawaiian home so she could collect a 5-cent redemption fee that wasn't available in Washington."

Oh, we are ever so on the map, now ... eat your heart out D.C!

Now I feel convicted!

I am one of those eco-unfriendly folks that haven't been heeding Hawaii's new deposit/recycling efforts.

Quite frankly, I have no storage at my townhome to store all of those empty Itoen Green Tea cans and I don't have enough time to visit a recycling center every week!

Hmmm, ministry idea? Imagine, a roving can collection and the proceeds go to help those in need.

Not easy to implement I would assume, but a nice thought.

Cool. Hehe. I've been trying to recycle...not the easiest thing for somehow who doesn't come from a recycling lifestyle, but i guess that's what it is, a lifestyle change.
