When my daughter told me that she wanted to educate me on recycling, I had to smile. I have raised her to be aware of her place in this world, and I was so happy that the life lessons I have instilled in her from the beginning were starting to manifest. She has always had a heart for the less fortunate, and she was able to get some great information on waste reduction and recycling that benefits not only those people but the general population as well. She was enthralled with everything she read about one company called VisionRe.
This company works in many different sectors. She was most interested in the food waste management at first, but the more she learned about this company, the more she understood about the general need to recycle and reuse as many things as possible. With food, she was only considering the fact that so much food was going into the landfills while there are people hungry or even starving right here in our own area. What she did not consider was how much this hurts the environment too. Nearly 20 percent of everything in a landfill is food waste, which is a staggering number.
She learned that as this food breaks down, methane gas is produced. She did not understand very much about methane gas before learning about this company, and she discovered that this gas is more dangerous than carbon dioxide, which we all know can kill a person. It is also very dangerous for so much methane gas to be in the atmosphere too. She learned how this company recycles and reuses so many different waste products, and she is starting to make changes here in our home now too. I was unaware of most of what she told me, and I am helping her spread the word to family and friends now about what we can do to help.
