Prevent Recycling Contamination

Contamination prevents what is recyclable from being recycled. I will spend 15 minutes researching which materials are accepted by local haulers or drop stations in my community and recycle only those items.

I will enjoy 4 meatless meal(s) and/or 1 vegan meal(s) each day this week.

    The needs vs want challenge is definitely helping with my spending habits.
