The Earth911 gang assembles in a time of crisis. Maybe we aren’t The Avengers, but we have proof from the pandemic that many individual changes in behavior can add up to massive changes in environmental impact. The coronavirus has halted life in many parts of the world, driving down pollution levels and raising sustainability red flags as oil prices drop, plastic has come back in vogue, and the plans for Earth Day 50 on April 22 go virtual.
Dive into this week’s conversation about green COVID-19 prevention, how to use coronavirus disruption to reset your life for sustainability, and planning your Earth Day activities. In this week’s Earthling Questions, we explain how to reuse pill bottles to fight disease around the world, what to do with unwearable used clothing, and the right way to recycle the HDPE bag inside your cereal box.
