Join the Earth911 team as we sit down to talk about what’s working in our sustainable lives — and what needs improvement. We explore the reduce, reuse, and recycling options in curbside programs, how to apply precycling practices before shopping to reduce waste, and the mysteries of recycling handtool batteries and compostable plastics.
Earth911 contributors Sarah Lozanova and Trey Granger share their assessments of home energy use improvements and the viability of nuclear fusion power and carbon-intensive air travel. We also discuss the best lifestyle choices we made in the last year, including shopping local, cooking for a lighter carbon impact, container gardening, and green entertaining.
We also answer Earthling questions. This week, questions from our readers have us digging into recycling options for unused ammunition, what to do with vape pen waste, and the value of glass recycling in the wake of the China ban.
