Sorting the recycling: nothing ever sounded so easy; nothing was ever such a bother.
Long gone is the guilt-free era of throwing everything in the trash. We must give up serious square footage to blue bins and yellow bags. We must be fit and able to deconstruct packaging, sort, store, and transport. But what if it’s too much physically or mentally to cope with recycling? You can’t just put everything in the garbage. Right? Clutter builds. Anxiety builds. Until when? Until you can’t think of anything except the mess you can’t do anything about. Until it begins to reduce the quality of your home life and peace of mind. Recycling anxiety is as real as COVID-19, and no one should feel embarrassed about it. Please don’t be shy about asking for help with something as “easy” as recycling. The struggle is real.
