The Global Recycling Day episode of Sustainability in Your Ear features a conversation about the future of recycling, circular economies, the business value of preserving resources, and the power consumers have to drive companies to embrace environmental values.

Evelyn Fielding-Lopez, Trey Granger, Sarah Lozanova, and Mitch Ratcliffe discuss producer responsibility laws, global access to waste removal services (more than half of the human species does not have regular trash pickup), and the viability of recycling on the West Coast after China’s ban on contaminated waste imports. With recycling changing rapidly, the gang talks about how to reduce plastic use in the home.

And, of course, we talk Earthly Questions: How to recycle K-cup coffee waste; The difference between compostable and biodegradable materials, and how to clean wax off glass bottles before recycling.

Listen to “Earth911 Podcast, March 18, 2019: Global Recycling Day” on Spreaker.
