Reader ‘Sounds Off’ about the need to recycle

Dear Readers: Today’s Sound Off is about recycling:

“Dear Heloise: We all live on one planet with dwindling resources and a growing population. So why don’t more people recycle as much as they can? I would encourage folks who think it’s too much trouble to recycle to reconsider. Got an empty can or glass bottle? Just a quick rinse under the tap and into a recycle bin or bag it goes. My husband and I don’t have kids yet, but we feel that we are merely custodians of the planet, not owners. Let’s all recycle our paper, plastic, glass and metal, and leave this world in better shape than we found it, for generations to come.” — Charlotte M., Green Bay, Wis.

Charlotte, I couldn’t agree more! My staff and I recycle everything we can, both in the office and at home. — Heloise
