Recycling is in, and it is found everywhere. Recycling has raised awareness to people everywhere toward restoring the environment before it’s too late. When we think of recycling, we tend to think of recycling plastics, food wrappers, cans and bottles. This is to reduce waste products that cause destruction to Mother Earth.
On the other hand, household throwaways are also consuming space in our cabinets back home. Household throwaways like used clothes, shoes and toys, that is. These can also be recycled through good deeds. You can give or donate items like these to the less fortunate ones under various charitable institutions, instead of filling our landfills. However, if there is one household throwaway that every one of us is guilty of not recycling… our food leftovers.
