Mental Note for Next Eid #2

So my family recently had our Eid open house. As I had done for Eid in previous years – as well as other parties- I set up a little recycling bin for used tin cans. We use up about 4 to 5 cartons (24 in each pack) of canned drinks for each Eid party.

Be Green, Please: Empty Tin Cans Only!

Its a small but consistent step that we’ve taken in recent years. In previous years, some little nephews threw other bits of thrash into the recycling bin. Fortunately, there has been a great improvement this year with 100% of the recycling bin’s content being just the tin cans. Guess the kids have made a mental note of not messing up Aunty Sof’s green activities!

Family settings are clearly the best place to start going green. So, go ahead and try it out for yourself. 🙂
