Rubber Bands – To Toss or Not to Toss
By: Real Moms
I go through two phases in life. One where I will remove rubber bands from a stack of mail or my soup container from Whole Foods and I will toss it into the trash. Obviously the next day an occasion arises where I desperately need a rubber band and I immediately feel wasteful and full of remorse. So then I swear to never dispose of another rubber band as long as I shall live. Time goes by and I never ever again have a use for a rubber band. There it sits, a container on my counter, overflowing with a rainbow array of elastics. It stares at me, reminding me daily that I am an ecological heroine but that I am also extremely ill-prepared to recycle my salvaged materials. What can one do with a small Mount Vesuvius-sized jar of rubber bands? Well, ask no more, friends, ask no more. We have got a treat in store for you so helpful, you’ll never again doubt whether to toss those rubber bands or to store them away for occasions just like these.
