Hands-On Recycling Learning Environment For K-12 Announced

A pilot project has been started for thousands of students in the New York, Maryland, and Michigan areas. This new project will include a hands on learning environment surrounding the science of recycling. The project is headed by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) and they plan to combine both classroom learning along with on-site visits to local recycling centers. JASON learning, a non profit group, also helped in the development of this program. ISRI believes that this project will teach these students the skills needed for careers in the field and help them develop interests in science, technology, engineering, etc. The president of ISRI believes that this education process will create the next generation of leaders for the recycling industry.

Announcing A Fully Compostable Single-Serve Coffee Pod That Works With Keurig Machines

Announcing A Fully Compostable Single-Serve Coffee Pod That Works With Keurig Machines

Canadian roaster Club Coffee has come up with the first fully compostable single-serve coffee pod that works with the Keurig machines. They are one of the companies that sued Keurig for controlling the market and creating a monopoly to keep prices for the cups very high. Their product is the PurPod100, made from coffee chaff, which is the skin of the bean that comes off during the roasting process. It is compostable because it is designed to be digested by bacteria. This cup can be fully broken down with composting in a matter of weeks. They are working on multiple certifications including their final certification to bring this product to market. This will make it much easier to recycle these pods because currently for many of the pods that can be recycled, the coffee grounds and the lid have to be separated from the cup in order to recycle it. It’s easier to make the cup of coffee at this point than it is to dispose of the cup that brews it, leaving most of them ending up in the trash. With this company moving forward at a rapid pace, the fully compostable pods will be on grocery store shelves in no time.

RecycleMania Tournament a Success

RecycleMania Tournament a Success

RecycleMania is a recycling tournament started in 2001 as a competition between Ohio University and Miami University. It spans about two months, February and March, and since its creation, many schools across the US and Canada have joined in. This year, more than 40,000 tons of materials were diverted during the competition which now includes many different divisions and covers a wide range of recyclables. In the E-Cycle category, the winner was Southwestern College, who recycled 22.2 pounds per person of electronic waste. The Grand Champion of the competition was Antioch University for the second year in a row. They diverted nearly 97% of their waste from a landfill, which is quite impressive. The list for this competition grows each year and with each year, more waste gets diverted from the landfill. This is a great competition and the more colleges that join in, the healthier our environment will be.
