Posting has been light these last few days because I am in Boston visiting family for a few days. But I had a few minutes to write something down that has been bothering me, and maybe some of you east coasters can correct me if I am way off base here. It seems as though people here (where I am, not up and down the entire seaboard) are not all that interested in being green, recycling, buying organic foods, etc. It’s all about prepackaged meals, frozen veggies, high fructose corn syrup this and that…it’s…different.
Yea, it is an incredibly large over-generalization to make, but from where I am sitting, I am seeing that it’s more important to save time and save money than it is to recycle an aluminum can, bring your own bag to the grocery store or buy a fresh vegetable. And it’s not just people in my immediate family, it seems to be most other places as well.
There are no e-waste recycling centers and nowhere to recycle plastic (just glass, aluminum and newspaper). It’s weird and kind of time-warpish…
So please, if you are an east coaster (I am currently near Boston), let me in on your thoughts on the state of the “green” movement here on this coast. Is it just me and my current surroundings, or are people pretty lax about the environment?
