Learning about Recycling can be fun and rewarding

As I drink my artificially flavored, because it had to be clarified on the bag in case I did not figure that out on my own, Chocolate Mocha Coffee this morning, I reminded myself to not throw the grounds in the trash, but instead to use them in the landscaping.  
As I sat down to the computer, I came across this article from Recyclebank concerning recycling coffee filters. How timely. (To read the article, you will need to sign-in apparently. Sorry for the confusion.)
From their website:
Whether you’re joining Recyclebank as an individual interested in learning more about waste diversion or you’re part of a community that offers our recycling rewards program, we’re all about helping you move down the path toward a waste-free future. From blog posts to quizzes to recycling resources, we’ve got all the tools you need to help keep even more materials from ending up in landfills.
Recyclebank is a site I began using … well, years ago.  We’ll leave the exact time frame alone.  Let’s focus on the fact that I keep going back to their site because it is fun, informative, and easy to use.  I have learned new things over the years, and been rewarded at various times.
Currently the rewards vary between magazine subscriptions, % off at certain websites, money off at restaurants, or even a free item from a particular website.  The rewards are always changing, which helps keep things exciting.
 
We do not currently use coffee filters, though if I got out our drip coffee maker I would.  However, I have started adding coffee to the front landscaping.  If you come to my front door, only to realize there is a fair coffee scent in the air, you have been warned.
