This company, Terracycle, really caught my eye the other day...saw it profiled on the Weather Channel, I think. They sell worm-derived fertilizers in recycled bottles and jugs. They are recycling in an actual, meaningful way. So much of what we think is recyclable, is not...not in many local areas, anyway. We toss yogurt containers, and all sorts of other plastics in with the most recycled beverage bottles and jugs into the recycle bins, thinking that things will get sorted out on down the line. Often they do not. And you have no real way of knowing. Now at least some of it can go back into the stream of use...check out what Terracycle will pay you to send the less popular plastics to them.
