One way I judge a city/state is by how often I see a recycling bin next to a trash can.

Growing up in the Bay Area, recycling bins were everywhere. Recycling is second nature to me.

But now as a frequent traveler, I’ve been to many places where it isn’t commonplace to see those blue bins next to the black ones.

It pains me every time I have to throw a recyclable item into a regular trash can. Serves as a good reminder that America is huge and that there’s still a lot of the country that hasn’t made the conservation leap.
