Why the Recycling System Is Not Broken

by Jeff Wooster, Global Sustainability Director at Dow
Blog

I wouldn't be surprised if every one of you has seen an article with the headline "recycling is broken" or something to that effect. I don't disagree entirely BUT, more importantly, I think it's a system worth fixing. 

I'm all about circularity – and that means I'm not willing to scrap recycling just because it has flaws. I'm much more interested in working toward fixing those flaws and creating a viable solution. Because we have got to do a better job managing our resources.
