    @Jeff, I joined Green Dimes sometime around..maybe '07, '08, so I receive no junk mail. I dont get magazines or newspapers either. As for "daily mail" almost none of that. Everything is electronic now. "Reduce" is better than "Recycle." I don't have any plastic drinking containers (we use a Brita & my kids have thermos.') We produce so little waste in our family that we had to have the city take back one of our trash cans. The remaining can is never full by trash day (by us) so our neighbors fill it up. We are lifelong environmentalists here (Berkeley grad) and we find it easy not to produce much waste, but not everyone does. That is my disagreement with "Informed Citizen." She is berating a guy on here who is stating that he wants to and is trying to do the right thing but finds it difficult with the way the city is disseminating information. That is not neighborly, nor does it help the cause. Alienating people by calling them "selfish" will serve only to drive them away. That's pretty much how we ended up with all those surprise Trump voters. My parents always taught me, "You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar."
