Monday, 12 May 2008 - One aluminum can

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for one aluminum can.

Recycling just one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a television for 3 hours or the equivalent of a half gallon of gasoline.

During my daily walks with T, I collect recyclables that litter our path. I also rescue items from the park's trash cans and culvert. My prized finds are aluminum cans because I know the value of recycling them.

Recycling one aluminum can won't save Mother Earth, but it's a good start. If every American recycled just one can a day or one can a week ... well, that's an entirely different story. I hope I live long enough to tell it.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
