Today’s sustainable tip: Recycle Correctly ♻️ Did u know that most of the items we send off to be recycled don't actually make it to the recycling process?
A lot of this has to do with Recycling Contamination (when incorrect items are put into the system OR when the right items are prepared the wrong way (like food residue in containers, recyclables in plastic bags, etc.). Although most people recycle now a days, there's still a lack of education about what’s recyclable and how to recycle properly. 1 in every 4 items recycled is contaminated. Well-intentioned people often mix non-recyclables in their bins, which can ultimately contaminate an entire batch of would-be recyclables.
Understanding the importance of proper recycling, and being mindful of what you toss in the trash, is the first step to reducing contamination.
Some tips for proper recycling:
♻️Sort your recyclables in different bins or bags at home and double check what you put in each bin
👀Always look for a recycling label (don't just assume it will be recyclable).
💦Rinse your jars, glasses and recyclable food containers. Don’t toss something with food scraps in your recycling bin!
❎Keep plastic bags out of your recycling bins.
🔎 If you're unsure about what you can or can't recycle, use online tools like a recyclopedia on google. I recently learned that styrofoam is usually not recycled cuz is not economically feasible to transport styrofoam to make up for the transportation costs to the foam recycling facilities, so it’s best to avoid buying products with styrofoam. Why does no one teach us this?? 💚 Through the power of recycling, we can create more jobs aaaand protect our planet.
What are some myths or facts you’ve learned about recycling?
Living a Clean lifestyle is about more than just what we're putting into our bodies. This #EarthDay , let’s honor Mother Nature by pledging to make our planet healthier.

I’m totally owning it.
That’s my daughter.
Wearing her latest finds from our Genbrug Byttecenter. Consider it your new Danish word for today.
It’s a place where anyone in our apartment complex can leave goods they no longer use, that maybe someone else would enjoy. This concept is a big part of Danish culture, with people not so worried about making money selling their used goods, but more focussed on simply passing it on. Most weekends we will take a walk to it and see if we can find some new treasure. Our only rule being that if we take something we must also donate something we no longer use. Creating a nice circular economy of sorts and helping to ensure we de-clutter on a regular basis.
