10 years ago it seems like the only people who were going green were the tree huggers. Presently though the word green has become so popular it is bordering on being a cliche.
|Every public place you go is going to have a recycling bin most likely. Recently I was in our downtown and needed to throw away some actual garabage and I ran into 3 recycling cans before I finally came across a garbage can.It’s pretty easy to see that the Earth is in trouble at the rate we were going. During Environmental Science class we read about how wasteful we are and how easy it could be for us to change our habits. In most cases it wouldn’t take much and recycling is the keystone of any attempt to change our wasteful ways.I’m not going to preach though because no one would listen to me and there are far more professional people that could talk your ear off on this subject. Instead I am going to talk about how the mailbox industry has thrown their hat into the recycling ring.
Auth Florence Manufacturing, one of the most if not the most trusted names in commercial mailbox systems has designed a recycling unit. It comes in the same sizes as their 4C mailboxes allowing you to make a continuous mail center design.
|When I first heard about this I was skeptical. Can a company who specializes in mailboxes really make a recycling unit? After looking at it I was surprised with how robust a unit they made. It has many features that would make it an attractive option to builders who are designing mail rooms.The part I like the most is that it has separate compartments. You can have a bin for paper, glass, and plastic which saves time when it comes to collecting it. It also is available in all the finishes that the 4C mailboxes are so you can get it to match your decor. So not only did Auth Florence make recycling convienent they have also made it so your buildings look is kept consistent.But still even after reading about all the great features I wondered if it would work. A few weeks ago I was visiting a friend who lives in an apartment building. We walked in and he checked his mail and immediately looked through it. He took the junk mail out and tossed it in a garbage can that was set out next to it. So maybe a recycling bin in the wall next to the mailboxes would be just the thing to get people to go green.
