I am so proud all those folks, locals and foreigners, who are so concerned about the island, it's sustainable development and the balance of the ecosystem here that they talk the talk and especially walk the walk (usually with a foam "to go" container in their hand).

It is a unique characteristic that is developed by those of us who consider work to be a four letter word. wink

SIN, are you referring to the many folks here that helped with the trash can project? Or the ones that have helped clean up Holy Cross School. Or the ones that clean an entire couple of acres each year. Or the ones that have donated money for trash bags. Or the ones that built a new classroom at RC School. Or the folks here that have donated medical supplies, time and effort to the health and welfare of the folks on AC?

SIN, i love you, but...

since nothing but a styrofoam container is offered to me, i have no choice but to have that container. that said, be assured it is disposed of properly by us. if it was recyclable, and bz recycled, you better believe we'd have done it. i dont even throw my butts in the road there, as i've been guilty of here.

but last year, you and i both questioned where all the sewage/rubbish was going to go when all these condos/hotels are built, and the influx of folks who want to go to florida without paying florida prices come.

so, where is it all gonna go? and why are you pointing fingers at those of us who DO come and drop tons of $$ and DO respect the island and its people?

the issue is NOT whether to develop and progress, it is the method in which it is being done.

I have a foam container sitting on my desk, guilty as charged.

It is easy for people to jump onto the most recent band wagon, grab a pitch fork, and attack developers and developments (informed or not).

Regardless of the argument, with both sides having pros and cons, one's personal practices bear witness to their convictions especially when involving conveniences.

Gads! I've been trying to buy as little garbage that will end up in the dump as possible, and recycling containers of all kinds. Still there are things that you just can't recycle here. I buy sauces, mustard, ect, in glass jars because those can be reused. I don't use paper towels, and re use plastic bags over and over and I still feel guilty about what I'm adding to the dump here!

Anyone have any other recycling tricks?

How about a re-usable shopping bag instead of plastic? I use mine all the time at Trader Joe's.

Or how about the fact that in Europe they charge for each grocery bag that you want?
