Recycling on the Farm
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that the average person generates more than 4 pounds of trash each day, amounting to about 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. It also estimates that 75% of the waste that goes into trash cans is recyclable, but we only recycle about 30% of it.
Horse owners aren’t exempt from these statistics. Think of how many water bottles you’ve tossed after riding on a hot day or how many plastic shavings bags you’ve stuffed in the trash. Fortunately, it doesn’t take much to make a few eco-friendly changes to your equine lifestyle. In this article we’ll discuss what and how you can recycle and reuse for a greener barn.
