So this is my first time every posting a youtube video on dA but I found that the song expresses the emotions that I’m feeling at the moment and really add to the story I’m about to tell you.

So I have been working at Subway for the last three months. I’m getting along well with all the employees and the manager really seems to value me as an employee. Anyways, in the lobby of the store we have one of those garbage can that has a separate compartment for plastic bottles that has a Coca-cola recycling sign that say “give it back” or something to that affect but those bottle just get thrown out with the rest of the trash.

Being an environmentalist and having spent the last four years of my life studying Environmental Governance, this was really starting to bug me so I went to the manager and nicely asked her if we could start recycling the bottles. She simply replied that that was just so the customers think that we recycle. When I continued to push the issue, she said that recycling doesn’t really matter and there is no guarantee that it’s even going to get recycled. I told her that I knew this but at least there was a chance...at least we tried. Then she got very nasty with me so I just back down but the more I thought about it, the more it began to bother me. I really don’t know what the problem is with recycling a few bottles, recycling is FREE here. I want to do something but I don’t know what I can do....
