When I moved to East Texas from Fort Worth, I wrote a letter to the Editor of the local newspaper, The Wood County Democrat, wishing that our town had a curbside recycle program. I'm sure plans had already been discussed, but perhaps my letter was the stoker that made it happen for all the towns in Wood County. Once again, I recently sent another letter to the newspaper to let everyone know about the new reusable cloth shopping bags for sale at our local grocery store. Imagine the amount of plastic bags nationwide in our landfills!
