seriously?



Come on folks, think before you toss something into the trash can and especially not onto the side of the road!


FDR State ParkThe above was read in a Georgia State Park brochure while camping this past weekend, there's something about sitting out in the green of nature that really hits home the whole recycling thing...

So, if styrofoam products never decompose, why on earth do they still make it??? Can it be recycled into more styrofoam products???

if styrofoam is burned it give off toxic gas also not good. it need's to be replaced with a compound that will break down faster. who knows how long that would take. going to the moon going to mars but we still have styrofoam. kinda got our recycling mixed up huh??

While I can see orange peels aren't the most attractive thing in the world 5 months into their decomposition, I find it odd it's included in this list - being 100% organic. I would imagine orange groves worldwide have survived centuries of dropped and rotting fruit, which feeds the soil. Why include it in a list with styrofoam and plastic bags?

I've never had qualms about discarding something on the ground like an apple core or a banana peel (as long as it's out of the way and not aesthetically una-peel-ing ;) ). Is there something I'm missing?
