From the Blog
It is not news to anyone that there is A LOT of plastic on Earth. Much of this plastic is dubbed “single use”, meaning it is only used once before it is thrown away.
While recycling is in last place of the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” mantra, it seems to get top billing in policy making, headlines and behavior change.
Change can be difficult, and in the book “Switch: How to Change When Change is Hard”, authors Chip and Dan Heath lay out the rules of the road for creating sustainable change.
