One more tip for #americarecyclesday: compostables are not recyclable!⠀
⠀
Why? ⠀
⠀
For compostable fiber bowls (like those used at Chipotle), the paper fibers are too short to be remade into new products.⠀
⠀
For compostable plastics (like Greenware cups), they're plant-based, instead of oil-based. Since they're not actually plastic, they can't go with the plastic recycle; doing so contaminates the plastic recycling.⠀
⠀
In addition, most composters don't want this material. It doesn't add nutritional value to the compost, takes up a lot of space in the piles, doesn't break down as advertised, and often contains high levels of PFAS, a chemical that farmers don't want in their soil. ⠀
⠀
Also, according to USDA organic standards, compost made with compostable packaging cannot be sold as organic, so accepting these materials limits the buyers for the finished compost product.⠀
⠀
So what to do? If you have composting, find out if compostables are accepted in your program. Otherwise, it's trash..

"Sustainability is intimidating."I encourage you to find one focus and start with that if you feel intimidating. Waste or energy or water. Find one way you can reduce your use of one of those and focus on that for 2 months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then add another and another one. Do what you feel comfortable with. It's not a competition or race for knowledge. We need everyone helping and that includes you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you find most overwhelming or intimidating about sustainability?

Delighted to be on board with @Sentinelcapital on this  energy efficient refurbishment for a 1960's block of flats in Texas.

The challenge is to implement cost effective solutions and INFORMED decisions to update the inefficient existing building stock.
