Turns Out It IS Easy Being Green
I don't know about you, but recycling in our house is ugly.
We constantly have a large unsightly box on the floor in our den for recycling. But that is the better of our options. It's either a hideous receptacle obstructing our path or we have to cart our recycling out the door, squeeze around one car, and shimmy in between two cars up to the giant outside bin each time we need to throw out some recycling.
Oh but there is another drawback to the very technical large-box-on-the-floor method, it has no lid and that really adds to the ugly factor.
Then there is the fact that it has no lid. Yes, I'm aware that I've already mentioned that but although I find that problematic, our dog sure doesn't seem to think it's a problem. Many times there are the shredded remains of all manner of recyclables strewn all over the floor.
So what's a girl to do? I just want to do my part, be a good steward, set a good example, AND not have a big cumbersome box in my den. I was beginning to think it was just too much to ask...and then I was sent a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler.
As the name implies, the bin keeps your recyclables hidden. It has brackets to fit over or can be bolted to the door of a cabinet. The 5 gallon bag itself is made of recyclable materials and can be washed in your washing machine. There is even a handle for easy transport. They have thought of everything!
This is a perfect recycling bin for college kids or apartment dwellers or people who have giant recycling boxes in their dens.
The one downside to the Hidden Recycler is that our dog isn't so thrilled with the lack of recyclable chew toys at her disposal.
You can purchase the Hidden Recycler online or in store at Meijer.
If Kermit had a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler, he would agree that it is actually really easy being green.
