This breathtaking photo of my arm (flattering, I know) shows what many have feared for a long time. Saving the planet is painful. It will hurt you. And by saving the planet I do mean dumping massive amounts of beer bottles into your recycling bin right outside your house.
This unsightly bruise (which I swear has not been altered in Photoshop) is now about 5 days old and goin’ strong. What caused this tragedy you might ask? The flawed design of our city recycling bins.
Why is it no matter how hard you try to keep the lid open while you’re dumping stuff in there the m*%f*$in’ lid inevitably comes crashing down on your arm? This, along with the deafening roar of glass hitting glass right by your ear makes me wonder if this whole recycling thing is just for suckers.
Until the green movement features better design, I’m out.
