Yesterday I cancelled my paper magazine subscriptions and now receive them electronically. The switch was easy to make, just a few phone calls is all it took. The print magazines are subscriptions I receive for City business and the combined weight is one pound. That’s twelve pounds per year. Twelve pounds doesn’t seem like much but, if every household in Lincoln City reduced this type of recyclable paper by one pound per month, the City would save over 400,000 pounds of paper going to recycling centers over the next ten years. The savings would be over $40,000. Remember, right now we’re paying to recycle. Reducing and reusing are the best ways to save on trash costs and improve our environment. This journey has helped me see that there are lots of small, easy changes that we all can make which add up to big savings for our community. Keep reducing and send me your tips.
