How to Choose the Right Garbage Bag



So, you want to buy trash bags.  Sounds simple enough, right?  Not really.
Standing in the trash bag aisle, you’ll soon find yourself bombarded with dozens of choices, all which seem pretty similar. You got your odor shield, odor block, odor lock. Then there’s the litany of statements touting each bag’s strength: ultimate, extra strong, 3-ply strength, trusted strength.
Reading the product boxes won’t do you much good because they don’t seem to have much in the way of helpful information.  So how do you choose the right trash bag? Good question.
The 2.4 Billion Dollar Trash Bag Question
The single most important question you must ask yourself before starting your search is: 

What is this trash bag going to be used for?
Kitchen waste? Lawn care? Recycling? Bathrooms? Office? The bag you need will depend on what you need the bag for.  If you don’t answer this question, you’re literally throwing money away. You could end up wasting money on a more expensive, thicker bag when all you really needed was a less expensive, thinner bag or a shorter bag and thus wasting money on extra material.  Or, have you ever had a garbage bag break?  Leaving you to clean up the mess…… Yuk. 
Below are some helpful tips to keep in mind the next time ‘YOU’ are pondering, “Which bag should I buy?”

Is it the Flu, or is it a Cold?
How to know the difference.



Translating and treating your cold or flu symptoms shouldn’t add to your discomfort. While there are many similar symptoms between a cold and the flu, symptoms of the flu are quite unique.
PINPOINTING YOUR SYMPTOMS
Stuffy, sneezy, and sore?  Simply a cold.
Common cold symptoms typically target the nose and throat. Fear not—drinking liquids and using a humidifier can help alleviate these symptoms within a few days, with the help of a bit of medicine. Symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and nasal congestion may last up to 3-10 days.
Fever and fatigue?   It’s the flu. 
Unlike the more gradual progression of cold symptoms, you will experience a fast onset of symptoms—like fever and chills—in the early stages of the flu. Other symptoms of the flu include feelings of weakness or fatigue, all of which can last up to 1-3 weeks.
What is the difference between a cold and the flu?

The flu and the common cold are both respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. Because these two types of illnesses have similar symptoms, it can be difficult to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone. In general, the flu is worse than the common cold, and symptoms are more common and intense. Colds are usually milder than the flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems, such as pneumonia, bacterial infections, or hospitalizations. Flu can have very serious associated complications.

What are the symptoms of the flu versus the symptoms of a cold?

The symptoms of flu can include fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle or body aches, headaches and fatigue (tiredness). Cold symptoms are usually milder than the symptoms of flu. People with colds are more likely to have a runny or stuffy nose. Colds generally do not result in serious health problems.

 

Overcoming your symptoms.


Get rest.
Some R&R does the body good—especially when you’re suffering from cold or flu symptoms.
Keep it clean.
Wash your hands and disinfect hard surfaces around your home to avoid spreading germs.
Fill up on fluids.
Warm, soothing liquids like hot tea and chicken soup can go a long way for a sore, scratchy throat.

A Season of Giving - The MUST Ministry Way
 

Please join us as we give thanks by giving back.

This week we are proud to spotlight MUST Ministries located in Marietta, Georgia.  MUST Ministries provides food, housing, toys and more, to the needy and the homeless. For more than 45 years, MUST has established itself as a servant leader caring for those in need in the Marietta, Smyrna and Canton/Cherokee County communities. Founded in 1971 by the Rev. Wayne Williams, MUST Ministries’ initial programs included a grocery bus ministries for the elderly, a youth tutoring program and outreach ministries to "alienated" young people. Since it’s inception, MUST has fulfilled Wayne's vision of connecting people who have a desire to help with those who need help the most. Today, MUST encompasses more than 10,000 volunteers who are continually helping MUST Ministries achieve its goal of being Georgia’s most respected servant-leader. 

The prolonged economic recession has forced millions of Americans into poverty, with nearly 15 percent of the population – or roughly 46.7 million people – living below the poverty line in 2014.  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, that figure is up from about 11 percent in 2000.

Team Reliable is so proud and blessed to give back to America’s needy who struggle to live their daily lives below the poverty line. Reliable Paper gladly donated almost half a truck of commercial kitchen products to update and expand their kitchen facility.  


We concluded our visit with a large case of napkins, and a calling card when stock runs low. Once again, sharing the gift that keeps giving when the need arises.


“I would like for us to do this all year long!,” said Reliable Paper’s president, Brickford Faucette, photographed in the submission above.  “And, wouldn’t it be GREAT if all of our employees had the opportunity to participate in deliveries as well?”  Yes!  Mr. Faucette.  What a wonderful idea that is! 

Please stay tuned as we continue to share our journey into a season of giving with you, our Reliable community.

A Season of Giving - The Extension Recovery Program
 

Please join us as we give thanks by giving back.
This week we are proud to spotlight The Extension located in Marietta, Georgia.  The Extension provides addiction recovery for the homeless. During The Extension’s fiscal 2016 year – a total of 177 individuals received comprehensive residential treatment for addiction to drugs and/or alcohol; 124 of those we men, while the remaining 53 were women.

In the men’s program, nearly 75% remained in the program for at least 60 days. For those there that long, just over 60% went on to complete the program. Astonishingly, 90% of those who tracked following completion of the program reported that they maintained sobriety, stable housing and employment. Despite a relatively warm winter, The Extension provided emergency shelter to 86 guests on the coldest nights of the year. Those guests received nearly 900 meals.

The Surgeon General’s 2016 report, Facing Addiction in America, states, “Substance misuse and substance use disorders have devastating effects, disrupt the future of too many young people, and all too often, end lives prematurely and tragically. Substance misuse is a major public health challenge and a priority for our nation to address.”

Team Reliable is so proud and blessed to give back to just of few of those in America facing addiction recovery issues. Reliable Paper donated almost half a truck full of commercial kitchen products to update and expand their kitchen facility.   We concluded our visit with a large case of napkins, and a calling card when stock runs low. The gift that keeps giving when the need arises.

‘I wish we could do this every day!” stated Reliable Paper’s president, Brickford Faucette, photographed in the submission above.  As he walked away wearing an enormous smile. His heart obviously full of giving back joy.

Please stay tuned as we continue to share our journey into a season of giving with you, our Reliable community.
