Compostable plastics are becoming increasingly popular to replace traditional single-use plastics. However, compostable plastics are not ending up where you think they are.

Compostable plastics cannot break down using backyard composting methods and are not being processed at commercial composting facilities. Typically, they are screened out of the compost stream and sent to the landfill where they will take hundreds of years to break down.

Choose reusables!

Why should we care about reducing plastic?

Every piece of plastic ever produced still exists on the planet today. Most plastic never biodegrades, but instead breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces called microplastics. These microplastics can be very harmful to our oceans and human health. To learn more, head over to https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/microplastics.html.

The holiday season means cooking up some comfort food and eating to your heart's content. Unfortunately, this typically means loads of leftovers ending up in the trash. Nearly 40% of food goes uneaten year-round in the United States - that's roughly 160 billion pounds of food wasted annually! There are small changes we can make in our daily lives that will add up to big results over time. Pledge to reduce your food waste this holiday season by following these simple tips.

Hello, I live in Kensington and I used to bring my plastic film bags/wraps to be recycled at the center on Schmidt Street in El Cerrito. Since they no longer take it and our curbside pick-up has omitted it on the list of things they pick-up, do you have an option for me, and am I even in your member region? Thanks so much for all you do!
