Anti-Green Tip #1: Paints
It's a big drag to get rid of paints the "right" way. Most cities won't let you leave paint cans at the curb for recycling, they make you schedule a "special" pick-up day that happens about once a year, and it always seems to fall on a day that's most inconvenient for you. Or, they insist that you drive out to some recycling center to drop off the paint cans. Why do that when it's easier to just pour it down the drain or hide the half-full paint cans in the trash? I mean, who wants to waste gas driving somewhere to drop off a paint can, or the time you could spend doing something else, like watching Jersey Shore?
