Germans know how to Recycle

I read the following: Environmental awareness in Germany is extremely high. In a country with limited natural resources and high population density, it is not surprising that there is broad consensus on recycling, conservation and renewable energy.  So it’s not just noise pollution they are intense about (which I feel we’re getting better by the way).  I learned quite a lot about recycling while living in London as well.  It was even trickier there, I think.

So I’m going to show you what we do with our waste here at home.

Ok, this still frame is upside down and I have no idea how to fix it.  Maybe I look better upside down anyway!  We’ll just keep it that way.

And please forgive me, I am not an experienced Vlogger!  These videos might make you a bit dizzy!

So that’s it.  Here’s my after shot with nice clean bins.  I’ve also added some shots of our kitchen, let me take you on a little tour!

If you click on each picture I sort of describe what you’re seeing there…

Check out my Easy Bake Oven:

I’ll have to take you on a tour of the rest of the place another day!  I actually love the recycling here.  I don’t think it’s much a bother at all, and I feel good doing it.  Not sure why recycling where we lived back in the USA actually cost me extra money to have it collected.  It seems so backwards.  The other thing I don’t understand is why anyone thinks it’s not a good idea.  Why not try to consolidate our waste?  That’s my soapbox for now.  Wish me continued luck as we still try to tackle that sound pollution situation!😂

    1. No reason to be sorry. And I hope I don’t sound like I’m complaining. I’m simply sharing my new world with family and friends from other parts of the world where this a bit different. I actually have a second fridge down in the basement, and I haven’t even really used it yet. So all is good.
