I thought this bulletin from the Uptown Neighborhood News was worth repeating:
Minneapolis Residents can finally recycle more materials!
In addition to existing materials (such as cans, glass, plastic bottles, cardboard, newspaper and office paper), the City is now accepting:
If you live in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area and ever wondered “can I recycle this?” then have I got the site for you! Check out The Trashbasher, a great blog that tells you where to recycle everything imaginable. Thank you Kelly Maynard for recommending this fantastic resource.
Close the loop, choose recycled materials
So, we are sorting our plastic and the city is collecting it for recycling. To make these actions remotely worthwhile, somebody has to use these materials.
When you see Nau Sustainable Urban + Outdoor Apparel, you will want to wear recycled just for the chic of it. I had my eye on this sporty trench for months and was ready to pounce when it went on winter clearance a couple weeks ago. I was pleased to see it came delivered in a very minimal envelope.
I don’t like taking pills or buying plastic bottles, but I definitely get sick less now that I take a vitamin regularly. I switched to Rainbow Light brand when I discovered they use a 100% recycled and recyclable bottle.
I was shocked how much this recycled plastic closet organizer from the Container Store improved my winter. Though it’s meant for shoes, it works a treat for managing our unruly assortment of hats, mittens and scarves. Soon I’m going to switch it out for our more summery accoutrements.
Brian got me this Souldier brand guitar strap from Twin Town Guitars. Souldier products are handmade in Chicago from Vintage deadstock material, recycled seatbelts and upholstery ends. My sister Charlotte was oohhhing and ahhhing over my fancy strap at Jim Ruiz Set rehearsal.
So I got her a Souldier Strap for her birthday.
Come see the straps for yourself next week when we play in Brooklyn at the Chickfactor For The Love Of Pop Showcase.
Thanks for reading the Wednesday Post!
