Old Keys: Recycle This

Keys are metal too, but since they’re so small and all, we usually overlook them. Our keys to long-demolished cars and old apartments still sit in the corners of our junk drawers, gathering dust. We’re experts on recycling cans and electronics, but something as simple as a key? We’re surprised we didn’t think of it earlier. When, we came across Keys for Kindness while surfing the Web for new ways to recycle, an imaginary energy-saving lightbulb clicked on above our heads. Just like with your old CDs, send them in and they’ll do the recycling for you. The program stemmed from a family member with multiple sclerosis. Looking for a way to raise money and recycle at the same time, they came up with this idea. They’ll sell the metal and the money goes to charity. Think of all the good deeds you’ll be doing if you recycled your keys — helping the environment, de-cluttering your house and donating to a good cause.
