As I write our first blog post I am left wondering how to introduce everyone to EcoGeneration.
About two years ago I went searching for options on how to recycle plastic waste. This was around the time Lane County, Oregon stopped allowing plastic to be recycled in the curbside bins and at the local transfer station. When I started researching how to recycle plastics, I discovered that the issue was much greater than just a single material. In response to the growing research I’ve done, I decided that I would share the information I learned with anyone who wanted to know more. Thus EcoGeneration was born.
Over the last two years, I have learned a lot in terms of waste and how it is contributing to climate change. Regardless of how one discards much of their trash, there is likely going to be a toll on the environment. The question is how great of a toll, and what can we do to minimize the impact.
