environmental education made easy

"Most systems are only as worthwhile as their inputs, and recycling is no exception...Many problems in our recycling system come from people's misinterpretations of the process, and fortunately, this can be fixed."  Beth Porter

As members of the solid waste industry dealing with contamination, we understand her point all too well. In her book, Reduce, Reuse, Reimagine: Sorting Out the Recycling System, Beth Porter explores why recycling is important, what the current issues are, and how they can be addressed. See our feature article below for more on her book.

Communication and education play major roles in correcting misinterpretations and preventing contamination. Eco Partners would love to work with you to deliver your messages about local recycling programs and help you improve your community's recycling "inputs." Please give me a call or  email me !
Keep on "reducing, reusing and reimagining!"

Reduce, Reuse, Reimagine
In Reduce, Reuse, Reimagine: Sorting Out the Recycling System, Beth Porter makes the case that, "A functional recycling system can boost our economy by providing manufacturers with the means to generate new products and benefits the environment by reducing the demand to extract raw materials."
Porter begins with an historical perspective on recycling, starting with World War II scrap drives in the U.S. She then goes on to explore several key points, including  Why Reduce and Reuse Come First, What's the Point of Recycling, Where Your Recyclables Go, Economics of Recycling, and  Taking Action.
