We have been doing the recycling for sometime now. Recently I decided that we need to start composting a little more seriously. So we changed our garbage can into a compostable receptor and put a little can beside it for actual garbage. The results of separation over the first week was an eye opener. Big reduction in waste. 

On a mass scale this is huge. I have just did it for the office. With time will get the whole building involved. We have been doing this at the house for a couple years now with nice results. Sure saves a lot of money and trips to the dump, plus created some awesome resources for the gardens. 

We all could do this. Looking forward to seeing if change can happen for you. Reduce your impact on the environment, one step at a time.

Ps we setup rain barrels in 2012 when I moved on site. These help keep the fliers watered through out the dry season.

Mapping the Flow of the World’s Plastic Waste

The first plastic material, Bakelite, was invented in 1907. It made its way into everything you can imagine: telephones, chess pieces, Chanel jewelry, and electric guitars.

But it was in 1950 that our thirst for plastic truly began. In just 65 years, plastic production soared almost 200 times, resulting in about 6,300 million metric tons of waste today.

How does the world deal with this much debris? The truth is, a lot of plastic waste—both trash and recycled materials—is often shipped overseas to become someone else’s problem.

Recycle and Reuse; But Above All, Reduce

With the proposed carbon tax being mandated by the federal government, lots of discussions on this issue. 

My biggest concern is the giving away of rebates to all Canadians , frankly it’s simply a tax redistribution scheme. 

Perhaps, to qualify for the credit, one had to participate in  a info course online on how to reduce their carbon foot print to make them eligible for the rebate. I could accept that. The intent would be to educate which would encourage wider adaptation of best practices. The more you learn, the bigger your credit and eligibility for other grants perhaps.

Education is key.
