Sometimes it seems like doing a little here and a little there doesn’t add up to much. It’s hard to see where one family can make a difference.

When we get ambivalent about recycling or lax in our efforts to reduce our garbage output perhaps we should follow the garbage collection truck to the “sanitary” landfill. The images are disturbing but maybe the smell will push us to step up our small steps.
