Recycling plastic wrappings
I think everybody is pretty annoyed that the County let our recycling of paper, plastics completely stop, without seeking solutions. I was delighted to meet Mattie Mae Larson at the Hawaii Business Plan competition. She formed a company a year ago, Upcycle Hawaii, and she IS recycling flat plastics, ie plastic wraps, the plastic wrapping around bottle water for example or around paper towels, making zipper bags, purses, jewelry. She's actually selling in several stores on the island! That's something the county never recycled. I was so pleased to meet somebody actually DOING something that Mattie Mae Larson is my guest on Island Conversations tomorrow, Sun Nov 17....you may listen on the radio at 6:30 a.m. on KWXX (101.5 Kona, 94.7 Hilo), or at 7 a.m. on 93.1 in Kona or 97.1 in Hilo. Or it will be posted as a podcast at kwxx.com starting Sunday at 6:15 a.m. (if I did things right....).
with aloha, Sherry Bracken
