Practical Recycling

   Another interesting and incredibly practical thing that we have found in France is that many grocery items are packaged in reusable containers. The mustard comes in little wine (or juice) glasses. The Nutella, something that we go through alot of, comes in water glasses. I love it. We tend to save alot of this packaging as we do not have tupperware or other receptacles for leftovers. To dispose of our garbage, we drive down the road- any direction is okay- and toss it into any public trash bin we want.  Did I tell you this I where we got oldest child's bed? Our closest trash bin is in front of the dump, and as they do not have thrift stores here, the dump is the next best thing. Pretty funny.  Recycling is a bit further. Of course, there is glass recycling at most of these trash bins, as so much wine is consumed. Recycling is a little more of a hunt, but we have found one in Salernes, about 12 kilometers away. It is a nice town, a little larger and made famous for its ceramics.
