That's funny, but the number actually can tell you about the chemicals that are in that plastic. Those that can leach into our bodies, especially if you microwave them (the heat causes the chemicals to leach into the food), and some have been linked to birth defects, cancers and other health issues.

i recycle....i wish it were a law here in texas. truth be told i'm mildly fanatical about recycling. i even bought something to keep my bottles in so i can take those to the recycle facility.

think if we recycled all the starbucks cups that go in the trash every day all year around. we owe it to future generations to recycle....

ok off the soapbox!

you too?

When I decided to start recycling I went to Sam's Club and bought 4 large plastic storage boxes for the garage.

My boyfriend doesn't pay attention to what he throws away so I often peek in the garbage to make sure he hasn't tossed out any recycables.

I'm the same way. If I see something in the trash that's recyclable, I always take it out (unless the trash is really nasty or something). Actually, I do that at work too, but most of my coworkers are recycling fanatics as well, so I don't feel like a freak

I think everyone who can should recycle! Why wouldn't you? Recycling is great.
