    Why is it so difficult to understand the impacts our purchases and waste have on other people, animals, and places? How might your experience with this challenge impact your future consumption and choices?

    I ... as a mom, feel that my actions have an impact in the life of my sons and that they will copy and improve everything I do.   Every change that I´ve been doing to my house is decreasing my monthly expenses.

    Waste Find Local Recycling Depots
    Our ability to recycle certain things ebbs and flows based upon many factors. Luckily there are places that accept uncommon things to recycle or dispose of in a less harmful way. What did you find when looking for places to recycle items that can't be recycled in your curbside bin?

    Near Hp offices is a place that recycle all electronic stuff... like stereos, pcs, printers.... most of the people used to have an old stereo and don´t know what to do with it, so it´s importnat to know that there is a special place for that
