The L.A. Times resorts to trash talk
You know the cool yogurt shop spoons — the ones that say "biodegradable"? Can they go in the blue bin for recycling? Or the green bin to be composted with yard waste? Or do they go in the black bin with non-recyclable trash, your conscience eased by the assumption that this plastic will break down faster in the landfill? (And does it, really?)Pose these questions to enough intelligent, responsible, well-intentioned adults, and you're likely to get different answers. Which is why the print edition of the Los Angeles Times Home section this week is all about trash: the new wrinkles in recycling and future efforts to reduce the amount of waste we create in the first place.
