Wow I've got three posts I'm in the middle of but I had a great long day with friends I am tired. One thing that is happening right now is that it's getting harder to recycle. I used to assume that Recycling Bin -> Factory -> New Bottle. I thought this was some kind of city-run community service, bottles collected and crushed into viable materials to be collected by The Man. What really happens is that someone has to buy them and it's a market like everything else - what a crushing reality check, lol. I just read on Lisa's blog that this market has fallen out. We're even feeling it on our super recycling-friendly island, where a few communities aren't taking glass bottles. It may be why our recycling pile is so big right now.
