    Yesterday the team went to the Recology MRF! It was my 5-6th time at the facility, but I still learned SO much new information. For example, since our recycling contamination is a determining factor on whether commodities get sold or not, Seattle is now encouraging people to completely wash out their food-tainted plastics with the goal of "if it cannot mold then it is ok!" That means no more peanut butter residue!!

    I was really excited about the toilet tank bank bags - I ordered 3 from Amazon for only $10! But when I went to install it in mine, I found that there wasn't enough room in my toilet tank?? Where the bag was supposed to sit was too close to the valve and it caused my toiled to actually continuously run. Luckily I gifted them to a couple friends, so the water is still being saved!

    Super excited to visit a MRF with the Seattle team next week! That's one of the waste goals and it will definitely be a memorable learning experience. I LOVE MRFS!

    I'm participating in my company's EcoChallenge! I'm excited to see that most of the Waste actions, I already do in daily life. Going through each category is great way to refresh myself on initiatives I haven't been able to commit to due to lack of time. This will be a fun and educational month for me!
