How Useful Is Recycling, Really?

#Recycling alone will not get us to #ZeroWaste or stop climate change, but it is "a key part of materials-management efforts, rather than a singular solution to climate change." - The Atlantic

Among all possible climate actions, recycling ranks pretty low in its impact.

It sure would be nice if, on those rare occasions where we have more recycling than will fit in the bin, our recycling workers would take the broken down cardboard right next to the bin.
I enjoy how dedicated this page is to informing Dallas citizens in easy ways to stay green and reduce our waste! In an effort to promote another way to slim down to zero waste I wanted to share with y’all this new environmental documentary trailer I found on YouTube called “Kiss the Ground” ! It offers solutions to climate change and how we as individuals can help cut-down waste, practice regenerative agriculture and the beauty that is composting! It comes out on Netflix Sept 22 along with a Q&A virtual party event on Facebook!
hey guys! Im casting a paid commercial and looking for local recycling heroes in the Dallas area!

I can be reached at [email protected] or please tag anyone here that might fit the bill!!!

Electronics Recycling: According to EPA the United States is estimated to have generated nearly 50 million tons of electronics waste in 2018 compared to 41.8 million tons worldwide in 2014. Currently the US produces about 14% of the world's electronic waste. Join us for the July meeting of the North Texas Renewable Energy Group in Dallas to learn what one North Texas company is doing to address this growing problem. https://www.facebook.com/events/410088412922862 Check back later on our website where we post presentations: https://ntreg.org/downloads.shtml
My family will be moving to Dallas in September. I’m an active member of my zero waste group here in NM. Is there an active group here in Dallas? I’d love some tips about where to shop, compost, etc.
