Since living on Oahu I've learned the valve of recycling and to do my part to help the environment. Hawaii is one of the few states that actually pays you to recycle and of course you get charged a fee for buying anything that comes in plastic, aluminium, and etc but you get the money back as long as you take the effort to recycle.
Well since I've been in SC, I've been doing a few things to help myself out. I change all my light bulbs to the energy efficient bulbs they are a little cheaper if you buy the true valve type from Walmart! I bought the light bulbs in November 2009 and they are still going strong and its July.
