I dropped off two expired cell phone batteries at CVS this morning, they had a collection box for old cell phone batteries. It makes me wonder where this e-waste actually goes after it's dropped off. I'm glad they are lending a helping hand and are doing the collections, but where does this actually end up?
I try to be environmentally conscious. I reuse plastic utencils, takeout containers, plastic cups and anything that can be reused with a quick clean and rinse. I try and use durable goods as much as possible, anything that does not go in a landfill can effectively reduce the junk that goes into our landfills.
I encourage you all to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle whatever you can. If each of you uses one less plastic fork a day and spread the message and ask others to do the same, together we can make a big impact. I'm not an environmentalist nor am I asking anyone to become an environmentalist, though I do respect environmentalists and their ideals. I'm just sharing my thought on one small step we can all take to improve our environment and the planet we live on. There are many other steps we can take to reduce waste and make this a better world for ourselves and our future generations, and I may go into that in a future post.
If you know where CVS, Best Buy, Target, Walmart or any other chain store sends their collected e-waste, let us know in the comments. I'm always interested in learning a little more.
