Zero Waste Day

Today is America Recycles Day. Some people think this is the wrong idea. makes the case for emphasizing reusable packaging instead of recyclable. I don't particularly care for the way they frame this, but I think they make a provocative point, and I think perhaps we should reconsider such concepts as deposits on bottles and cans. If we can do better than what we're doing now - and in Houston at least, that's sadly not a high bar to clear - we should make the effort. Take a look at what they propose and see what you think.
