Poem: Open Letter to Last Night’s Passerby

Open Letter to Last Night’s Passersby I wanted to thank you, personally, for the shitty diaper you left by the side of the road last night. It landed right beside your container of all-natural juice, made with five and three-quarters apples, three bananas, and twenty-seven blueberries. It was organic, though I don’t know its container’s half-life when it lands on the concrete and asphalt of a city street. We could probably figure it out, and just how long it would take for someone to educate your ignorant self on what to do with trash when you decide to clean out...

Recycling re-update

Dear Renee,

Any updates on the Covanta recycling deal with the city of Indianapolis?

Denise

Dear Denise,

The short update is that there was a lawsuit filed against the City of Indianapolis last fall and we lost. Now there is an appeal and there are still opportunities to show that [...]

Power down

No more plastic hangers!

Hi Renee,

I was wondering about recycling plastic hangers. I searched the Indiana Living Green website, and if I am not mistaken there is information about wire hangers. How about all plastic ones, and the plastic ones with metal hook tops? I work at a resale shop, and we end up with bags [...]
