here i stayed on my recycling pedestal. about 70% recycle and 30% trash a week. they only pick up recycling every other week, btw.
anyway…i try to recycle everything i use. sorry i lost the link and am too lazy to google it, but several prominent news organizations did reports alleging that recycling companies recycle and then sell it. i think china was the #1 buyer of our recyclables. than the orange guy did something stupid and now china won’t buy our recycling….leaving it all to be thrown with the regular trash.
among other things, this breaks my heart. i’m sure the ocean will face another hefty fine for this.
