Plastics: What’s recyclable, what becomes trash — and why
Where I live, we can no longer put any kind of plastic in the recycle bin … only cans and cardboard boxes. We do take our soft drink cans and bottles to a local recycle center, use cloth bags for grocery shopping, and ask for paper at other retailers. But there’s still SO MUCH that we must toss in the regular trash.
One can’t help but wonder where all this is going to end up. We worry about climate change, but the plastics may take over the planet long before the weather does.
*Sigh* Human innovation may be the death of us all.
