Sure I recycle, stopped using bags at the store, turn off my lights, etc, etc…but I could do more and I believe he’s on to something. Also considering some of the new recipes I want to try (like the bacon infused bourbon) I think it’s time I did my part and NOT PART with my bacon grease. (which I am sure will make Better Half real happy…)
