Shocking … shockingly WRONG
Yes, the plastic pollution epidemic has spun out of control. We are creating and using much more plastic than we should, especially considering how recycling has taken such a hit recently. China, our top customer of plastic recyclables, has stopped purchasing from the US, mostly due to our inability to separate recyclables from trash. This has caused our own recycling centers to become overburdened and unable to keep up with the amount we are dropping into the blue bins daily.
The power of great content to influence change

California could be the first U.S. state to adopt a comprehensive approach to plastic waste reduction
It’s motivating to see how quickly plastic pollution awareness has grown around the world. Awareness is a critical first step in the global movement to rethink plastic and end the global plastic waste problem. But much more must be done to effectively act on plastic.
The Core Basics
A circular economy is an economic system aimed at eliminating waste because it involves continual use of resources.
In practice, it implies reducing waste to a minimum. When a product reaches the end of its life, its materials are kept within the economy wherever possible. These can be productively used again and again.
