Day 108 of our Green Year: Recycling At The Movies

Today, Layla and I went to our first movie in two years; Kung Fu Panda. It was a really great movie, and the best part of it is that we went in there with nothing and came out with a variety of items that we will be reusing at our home.

We are not big on going to the movies, we actually prefer watching them at home or online. However, as we are partly on vacation, we decided it would be good to go see a movie we have both wanted to see, while seeing if we could be green about it.

  1. Receipts - The receipts of the movies will be re-used as to-do lists, bookmarks and more.
  2. Popcorn Tub - It is not the healthiest thing to eat, it is not something local but its hard to go to the movies and not have one. We are using the reusable tub as a pot for plants at our home. It is a good size and will work perfectly.
  3. Drink cups - The drink cups we also have will be re-used as flower pots as well, or anything else we may need for storage once they are cleaned.
As you can see, going to the movies can be just like camping; leaving only footprints. You can recycle what you get, and you can enjoy a great movie in the process.

Also, Layla and I hit 3,000 hits today and are going strong. That means we have a daily hit total of about 27 hits over the course of our 108 days. Thank you to everyone who has helped us get to this point and we are going strong and hope to keep getting more and more hits every day to spread the green message.

If you want to talk green, drop us a line at If you want us to speak to a class or anything like that, remotely or in person, let us know. Layla and I are very committed to teaching others about going green and can help out in any way we can.
