Overhead Bin – Mom recycles her way to Italy
After Cheryl Davidson’s two teenage kids scoffed at her longtime recycling habit, she decided to prove that every nickel counts.
In an interview with Los Angeles NBC affiliate KNBC, Davidson recounted the challenge she gave herself: “I said, ‘OK, you know that trip Dad and I are going to take to Italy the fall before my 50th birthday? I said, ‘What if I could pay for it with recycles?’ “
That was three-and-a-half years ago. Davidson quickly started the “Tuscany fund” and saved over over $7,000, which she recently spent on a two-week trip to Italy.
I want to know how much she recycled and what. you get 10 cents a beer bottle. that’s over 70,000 beer bottles.
