Two sets of sisters have a lifelong bond after graduating Marine Corps recruit training together.

We need a better recycling plan. Who says we’re not Number 1? Obama was President in 2016 My fault....I'll try to get it taken care if. Sorry everyone. Kinda like Covid case totals, it's only the final outcome that matters. Where does most of that end up? Do better journalism....again. Remember when there were recyclable glass milk and soda bottles by the front door of the store and you put your crate of bottles there when you went in? People started thinking that was 'unsanitary' 😲

That's why landfills exist, garbage has to go somewhere....DUHH!!! 🇺🇸 EXCLUSIVE_REPORT U.S. ECONOMY grew at its fastest pace ever in the third quarter as a nation battered by an unprecedented pandemic started to put itself back together, the Commerce Department reported Thursday.

Dump calls other countries filthy as he allow shipping of all this plastic to third world, explains the state of his ignorance and care for planet. 48% of ppl still vote for him, what a shame and disgrace the great nation is becoming into. And next up is the Joe and Hunter Biden corruption story America first he said...

Doesn't sound like anything will change and only gets worse. Even this article is trying to shed much of the responsibility... 😃👍! Since the pandemic started we found ourselves with insane amount of plastic bags due to the increase use of online delivery. We are collecting them including our neighbors and take them to recycling. I really hope they can figure this out somehow with a better system...

Um so That's terrible! ☹ I can confidently say that we recycled 90% of our household purchased plastic. The remaining 10% was the the “keep fresh” plastic within commercial bread bags, cereal bag plastic, some bubble wrap that we didn’t opt for, etc. I’d love other tips if anyone has any. America 1st Thanks Obama
