Daddy forgot...

...to bring the recycling bag on our walk today. In an effort to help our planet we do our part by picking up recycling whenever we can. Sometimes we find one or two cans, sometimes we find none, and then there are days like today. We found a ton of cans and bottles today. Daddy was so bummed to discover that he had forgotten to bring the bag that we use to carry the recyclables that we find. We found seven bottles and two cans. Daddy had to put them in his pockets and into our waistpack (Mommy didn't have any pockets). I will have to remind him to bring the recycling bag tomorrow. What are some things you all are doing to help our planet?


  1. Hi, Teddy!
    Good job!
    We do the same when we go out for walkies!
    Kisses and hugs

  2. Oh Teddy! When my parents were in Berlin, there were stores that take care of recycling. There was a Kaiser store which is like a grocery store. There is a machine there and you put the bottles and plastics in it, then it sucks the item in, and voila, you get a piece of paper money. Another store was Galeria Kaufhof which is a department/toy/gourmet/deli/everything store, and they had the machine too! So, Mom and Dad would take their water (and beer) bottles each morning to the store. One day, the store was closed, so they had to throw their recyclables in the bins outside for someone else to collect money because Mom and Dad weren't going to carry around the bottles all day. But, back at home, we don't make money on the bottles because we put them in the big recycling bins for Waste Management to recycle and then make money off of them, even though Waste Management is already making money from us! We don't know of a convenient local place for us to take our recycleables and get back money. Whew! So much to say tonight! Sorry for the spelling and typo errors.

  3. p.s. We do the same thing as your Daddy. Daddy brings back bottles and trash from our walks. We keep our neighborhood trash free.

  4. Mom tries to remember to use her special bags when she goes shopping. It's nice that you pick up things for recycle when you walk!

  5. That is very good of you to pick up stuff on your walks. WE recycle stuff at our house, like my cans from my food.
