31. Recycle what can be recycled.

This week it’s all about recycling the recycling message with recycled information. Repetition around rotating the recycling messaging shouldn’t feel like we are spinning our wheels. To help propel this message into the future, “Recycling what can be recycled” could be condensed into a single hyphenated word- Bi-cycle (cycling 2xs). Let’s jump on our Bi-cycle message and start pedaling for flower petals.

To help you ‘Recycle what can be recycled,’ here’s a simple 2-step process:

  1. Know what can be recycled, and 
  2. Recycle! (aka Bi-cycle).

Your ‘Future You’ encourages this simple and bold, repetitive Bi-cycle action. And your Future You is enjoying healthy active living from peddling your bi-cycling efforts and bi-cylcling your recycling tactics for years. I want to mention flower petals in this part just to add another Pedal homonym to this post.  

P.S. - It’s been reported that Corporate Housing companies help ‘Recycle what can be recycled’ by providing ‘Recycle what can be recycled’ bins and signs at our furnished properties. Oh, and almost all properties have spaces to cycle and re-cycle and cycle again so all of our guests can exercise their Bi-Cycle efforts during their furnished monthly stays..

31. Recycle what can be recycled.

It may seem like it goes without saying, but if you're going to recycle, it's important to recycle properly. Always recycle paper, steel, and tin or aluminum cans. In most cities (check your local municipalities' rules, of course), glass can be recycled as well. And always check for the triangular number on the bottom of plastic containers. This dictates whether the plastic container is recyclable and also, how to recycle it.
