My company recently moved to a large corporate office building with multiple suites and buildings, and a variety of amenities. What was quite surprisingly and shocking to discover is that the complex does not have a comprehensive recycling program for anything but paper. (Pretty amazing considering we’re in the City of Chicago).
Today I decided to collect my recyclables and transport them home every garbage day. Right now I have a spare Starbucks bag that I had in my cube to use but I hope to come across a more reusable canvas bag once I get the chance to take a look around the house. I hope to do this soon.
I also swung by Whole Foods and picked up one of their handy paper bags (they have handles unlike Jewel or Dominicks). I’m hoping I can collect enough page with handles from the Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s of the world so I can take those with me to bag my groceries (when I don’t shop there of course). I also tossed a few reusable Whole Foods canvas bags in my trunk for smaller shopping trips.
