Don't take recycling for granted...

I come from Portland, Oregon, a place where if it can be recycled, you can recycle it there. Susan and I now live in Oak Lawn, Illinois, where one of the major grocery chains is Dominick's. We primarily use reusable grocery bags from Trader Joe's, but occassionally, we still find ourselves at the grocery store without them, and have to take home the disposable bags. Well, Susan just went to Dominick's with a bag full of bags to recycle, and when she couldn't find the bin she asked the customer service desk where it was. She was told "Oh, we haven't had that for at least a year!" In 2008, we should expect our stores to be more socially responsible than this. So, from now on, we'll take our bags, and our dollars, to Jewel, which has recycled 14,200 tons of plastic (that's the weight of 2,500 elephants) in the last 17 years..
