"Think about how your actions make a difference in the world"
I learned about making 'eco-bricks' - we can't recycle everything locally, but there are some organizations who can collect things that the local council can't deal with, and can get them recycled. One project is called 'eco-bricks' where you stuff all your wrappers and plastic-ey things into a plastic bottle - they are then used to make new plastics apparently. It certainly removed a lot from the general waste bin. Around here I think I can simply drop these off at a local school or something - or perhaps I drop it off the waste so that they make the eco-bricks - I'm not sure. But I learned a bit about it.
In the UK, this organization TerraCycle seems most helpful - I can see there are several collection points for stuff near me. The downside is that there are so many different things that need to be separately recycled. I guess if I start doing it, I'll get to know what goes where.
