Last week, two of Global Green USA's projects were featured in the May 2013 issue of Plastics in Packaging, which has a circulation of over 6,000 and an estimated worldwide readership of 14,000. Editor Steven Pacitti was in New Orleans for the annual Plastics Recycling Conference, and paid a visit to Global Green USA's Holy Cross Project while he was in town. Given his interest in plastics recycling specifically, Pacitti also interviewed me about the work of our Coalition for Resource Recovery, a project of Global Green that brings companies together to develop and pilot systems that turn waste into assets. I shared with him some of our findings and ideas with regards to reducing, reusing, and recycling plastics, as well as New York City's recent announcement that all rigid plastics from residences will now be accepted for recycling. Both CoRR and Global Green's New Orleans office are currently building on the success of our "Green Growth and Resource Recovery" Conference in New Orleans last year, and will be further exploring ways to work together to improve waste diversion rates in the Big Easy.
