    Q. Question?

    I think recycling is important, but if we just keep consuming and using more stuff, even if we recycle it, isn’t that bad for the environment?

    A. Answer

    Great point. To start, we are focusing on implementing the infrastructure that will allow us to maximize how much "waste" we can divert from a landfill and recycle to another use. Now that most of the infrastructure is in place, our focus will actually be on reducing the total volume of items that are thrown away. We believe strongly in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and in that order of priority.
