Reuse and Recycle - New Fish Tank!
OUT WITH THE OLD and IN WITH THE NEW
Our fish are getting too big for the 2 gallon fish tank they are in.
Felix and Oscar need a bigger home.
I SHOULD have gone to Craigslist or Freecycle, but I went to PetSmart and got a 5 gallon tank. I did, however, put the old tank on Craigslist. I also recycled the box that the new take came in :)
Here is my ad.

This is the way to go! No use putting it in the landfill! Reuse and recycle! :)
SUCCESS! NEW HOME for an OLD TANK
I love Craigslist and email. Within minutes I had emails from people interested in getting the fish tank. A guy came by today and picked it up. I felt so good about being able to give it to someone who would use it, and the internet made it so easy. AND the person was local so you don't have the postage and environmental cost of shipping. The only thing that could have made it more green would be if the guys walked or rode a bike. Ha! :)
I suggest everyone to clean up and find a home for anything they could possibly throw away. I think this is a good alternative to Goodwill, where the item could be sitting on a shelf somewhere. This way I know it goes to someone who will be using it.
A little bit of instant Green satisfaction!
