  • Fracking? Injecting wastewater? New insight on ground shaking from human-made earthquakes

    Recycling and Waste News -- ScienceDaily
    23 Apr 2015 | 6:56 pm
    Significant strides in science have been made to better understand potential ground shaking from induced earthquakes, which are earthquakes triggered by human practices. Earthquake activity has sharply increased since 2009 in the central and eastern United States. Many questions have been raised about whether hydraulic fracturing -- commonly referred to as "fracking" -- is responsible for the recent increase of earthquakes. The increase has been linked to industrial operations that dispose of wastewater by injecting it into deep wells.

    This week Resource Recycling takes a look at AB 199, legislation sponsored by Californians Against Waste that provides a sales tax exemption on equipment used to process recyclables as well as equipment used to manufacture new products with recycled material.   Teresa Bui, CAW Legislative Analyst for AB 199, told Resource Recycling that the bill supports in-state jobs, helps create a more robust recycling system and benefits the environment by reducing exports of materials overseas. According to CalRecycle, every year California exports 20 million tons of recyclable material. Often,…

    Japanese Knot Bags are very handy and feature two handles. One handle is shorter than the other so you can pull the longer handle through the shorter as a quick and unique closure for the bag. I thought a Japanese Knot would be a cool idea for a recycled tote bag. I used mainly recycled grey Walmart plastic bags to crochet the tote bag with 4 blue plastic bags for the stripe. It took about 50 plastic bags cut 1 inch wide and made into plarn (plastic bag yarn) to crochet my Japanese knot tote bag. I loved how the blue really helped set off the bag to give it a nice look to an otherwise boring…

    California has an opportunity this year to ban one of the most insidious toxic delivery systems corporations have ever created: Plastic Microbeads.  These tiny bits of plastic are intentionally added to personal care products including facial scrubs and even the toothpaste that our families put in their mouths. Research has already proven this plastic is damaging to fish and wildlife; what about our children and grandchildren? Scientists estimate that over 400 million of them are released into the San Francisco Bay every day, and we are just now starting to understand the damage they are…

I used Boomer Beanies worlds best diaper cover pattern and followed the pattern as written using just a single strand of yarn for my first diaper cover I crocheted. Several other people had used the same crochet pattern and created a double thick diaper cover by crocheting with two strands of yarn held together. I loved this idea and set out to adapt the pattern to create my own variation of a double thick diaper cover. After playing around…

I used an old plastic-coated clothes hanger for the handle. I cut a piece 19 inches long and put some curved ends on the hanger so I could attach it to the sides of my crocheted basket. Once I had the hanger attached to the inside of the basket, I used a pliers to squeeze closed the curved hooks around the top edge to secure it to the basket.

This enables you to provide more information to people who are curious about your brand as well as remind current customers of the products and services you offer.

We moved beyond traditional recycling (paper, bottles, etc.) into what we called, shippables. These materials are recyclable, but not having enough value for someone to pick them up. The third phase (never implemented) would have been junk pickup. We focused our energies on growth, not revenues.
