In an earlier post, i mentioned how i noticed during my 2 weeks stay in Europe that the French seem to be more concerned with their water use-waste than most of us in the USA.
Another thing I noted on Toulouse streets is public recycling bins.
Besides their usefulness, they work as a gentle visual reminder.
It is much more effective than a do not litter sign.
Appeals to our do-gooder citizen side
I noted while reading on the topic that New York City has a similar program that I has not registered on my radar yet called NYCWasteLess whose focus is also public space recycling, from parks to neighborhood spaces.
