Happy Earth Day

We've been on a big recycling kick for the last few weeks. It started when our cousins asked if we wanted to go on a tour of the Montgomery County Recycling Plant.

Not a hard question!

It was fantastic! They gave a presentation on the hows and whys of recycling and how their system works, and then we were off to tour the plant.

I must say, this was brilliantly designed! You walk around on an upper level walkway that lets you see all the action in the plant as well as a view (through the windows) of the recycling trucks unloading and the front wheeled loaders at work!

Choclo was in heaven! He was inside a truck video!!! How we ever got him out of there is still a mystery.

Seeing the bales of plastic and metal brought it home in a way that nagging never could: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

They gave us some coloring books as we were leaving and we ended up doing a lot of other web based activities. We all had a great time!
