just the right thing to do
Recycling is good business practice. When we throw organics away, we are wasting a valuable easily accessible production material. It’s woefully inefficient and, frankly, just bad business to treat food waste as trash. Recycling creates jobs. Recycling our waste creates more than twice as many jobs as when we dump it in the landfill. Many of the jobs associated with an expanded organics infrastructure are sustainable, because these facilities must be built and operated locally. Recycling produces clean domestic energy. In the US only a handful of these facilities are currently in operation.
Diverting food waste from landfills provides a boost to recycling.
Diversion is more achievable than you think.
Doing nothing is an AWFUL choice.
