Honorable or Lazy?

I Googled "recycle," and this picture came up. Gotta love the human race...

I keep a small garbage bag in my car, but whenever I finish a plastic bottle of water, I wait until I'm near a recycling bin to throw out the empty bottle instead of putting it in my car garbage.  Sounds noble, right?  But here's the thing, I can never really discern if I do it because I actually care about the environment, or because plastic bottles are really bulky and would require me to empty the car garbage with annoying frequency.  Jury's still out.

  1. Either way, it's better than following through with the action in your picture. Besides, who cares if your reasons are altruistic, so long as it's the right decision?
