Every day is “Earth Day,” around our household. We do loads of things to encourage a healthy environment. People often ask me “What can I do?”
Here’s a simple thing: We all have old electronics lying around: TVs, monitors, desktop computers, notebooks, faxes and printers. Too often, when I am walking the lanes of my neighbourhood on garbage day, I see these items in the pile of garbage waiting to be picked up.
Instead of chucking your old electronics, why not recycle them? Vancouver has electronic recycling depots, where you can drop your scrap free of charge, as do most cities in Canada. Some of the depots even offer pick up.
So, don’t throw it out — recycle it and Happy Earth Day.
