Jason Mraz checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@jasonmraz) on Monday (August 16), offering ideas on how to recycle and upcycle the junk we accumulate. The singer songwriter tells readers:
If you’re self-employed and/or a procrastinator like I, you might spend your weekend poking at projects around the house saying, I’ll do this on Monday. Well, it’s Monday, and those projects are about to get a heavy dose of Vitamin Me.
Being as I’d just returned home from abroad, there is a great deal of mail, large and small to sort out – which, offsprings a great deal of packaging waste, namely cardboard & Styrofoam packing peanuts. I make sure to carefully collect them and drop them off at the local postal annex for re-use. There’s nothing I hate more than seeing those little plastic popcorns snowing in my garden or blowing down the street as they can so easily blow out of garbage trucks and landfills and become permanent fixtures in nature, drawing on my brow a look of bewilderment and of my frown, a sad face.
