Credibly promising to be irresponsible...since 2004!
When I recycle (not as compulsively as ol' #17, mind you), I sometimes have to rinse something repeatedly and/or with hot water (e.g. peanut butter jar) to get it clean enough to not attract ants when I put it in the bin outside.I always wonder how much of the energy/resources used (natural gas for the water heater, the water, the fraction of electricity used by the water purification plant/ water treatment plant, etc.) cuts into the resource/energy savings of the recycling itself?I am sure it is not enough to NOT recycle....not implying that at all! I am just curious (and desire to continue to avoid grading by thinking about it).
