If you don’t love me at my Then you don’t deserve me at my
Hello friends! Apologies I haven’t posted in a while; life has been crazy recently with back to back deadlines. Excited to announce that I should have two more episodes of my podcast finished by May 1st! So stay tuned for those. In the mean time here’s my paper plate award from my dear friends at @thechapelbelluga !
Hi friends! As you may have noticed, I changed my username. Trust me, I’m still taking pictures of trash. I’m just doing a little bit more than that now. I’m starting a new project called “Trashed: Exploring the Products of a Throw-Away Society.” It’s for one of my journalism classes, and it involves a lot of things, but most notably a PODCAST. I’ve never done a podcast before, and I don’t really listen to podcasts very often, but I’M DOING A PODCAST AND IT’S ABOUT TRASH AND RECYCLING and I’m really excited! This instagram page (and my Facebook page) are going to be where I start posting the material I gather for this project, and I’m so excited to share it with you all. The first episode of my podcast will be available on Soundcloud this Tuesday! I’ll be pushing out the link everywhere, but if you don’t already follow me on Twitter (@beccamariewrong), you should because I’m pretty active on there. Again, I can’t wait to share this with you guys. It’s the most excited I’ve been for a personal project in a really long time. ** Check out my Instagram Story for a little teaser!!!
Had a wonderful time tabling at the Athens Green Life Expo with my friends at @bagthebaguga!
Wish-cycling: throwing items in the recycling bin hoping they can be recycled but not knowing if they actually can. When in doubt, throw it out. Contaminated recycling bins go straight to the trash.
Loved seeing this while taking photos for @swabuga!! #recycle #plastic #plasticfilm @bagthebaguga
Low quality pic with high quality humans. Spread the news about reducing and refusing the use of single-use plastics today with my fellow @bagthebaguga members!
Feeling a little under the weather day with a sore throat. Lovely human who works with me brought me hot water, honey, and some tea packets. 🍵 Honestly a little surprised that UGA splurges on @mightyleaftea, but I’m okay with it! The tea bags are biodegradable/compostable, and the cartons are recyclable.

Went through the trash for some of these babies! Today in my photojournalism class, we got new equipment that was packaged with plastic film. Plastic film — grocery bags, packaging, bubble wrap, and more — can’t be recycled in single-steam recycling centers because they can damage the equipment. So instead of throwing it away, I collected it from all my peers. (I got lots of weird looks while I was walking back to my car.) You can recycle plastic film at special recycling bins designated for this material. (They usually have them at grocery stores!)

Interesting find today. I've taken photos of empty cigarette boxes before, but this one was almost completely full. Took a photo, recycled the box, and threw away the cigarettes. I remember when my dad quit smoking. I was about 8 years old, and he was 46. It was hard for everyone, but I know my dad is so much healthier without this holding him back.
