I took some bottles to the bottlebank to be recycled; there are plenty of empty bottles here.
As might be expected, there were lots of bits of broken glass sticking to my shoes after I had disposed of the bottles. No doubt there were also lots of even smaller particles of glass that I could not see.
Would you really want those bits of glass walked into your carpet or dragged across your laminate floor? Maybe the same floor your baby crawls on? Just take your shoes off at the door. It is not that difficult.
I did not even want those bits of glass in my car, and so I took my shoes off before driving home.
