I recently got an email from Fee Harding, who is an illustrator who goes by the name of Burntfeather. "I've been guilty of not recycling!" Harding writes.
"This overwhelming guilt forced me to start looking into what I could and could not recycle. So I set out to design a set of posters to blu-tak above my recycling stash in my kitchen!"
I like the hip look of Burntfeather's designs, and I love what he's going for, since we're constantly fielding questions from our readers about what can and can't be recycled. It seems like the rules are constantly shifting, and recycling is a locally driven enterprise, so there are no universal standards. Still, these posters give a pretty good idea about typical home recycling bins, so they are a good place to start.
