Climate Change Matters to Investors and Leaders

I was born too early to benefit much from Sesame Street, but I still loved The Muppets. Kermit the Frog was my favorite character; alternatively in full control and overwhelmed, Kermit struggled to make sense of the nonsensical. To this day, there are times that I feel confronted with the same challenge.

Kermit produced numerous pearls of wisdom, such as: 

“Beware of advice from experts, pigs, and members of Parliament.” 

“It’s nice to be important. But it’s important to be nice.”

Why Recyclers Should Consider Healthcare Plastics as a Valuable Feedstock

Blog

Healthcare facilities in the U.S. generate about 14,000 tons of waste per day. 25% of it is plastic packaging and products, and— 85% of this plastic waste is non-infectious (meaning it never comes into contact with a patient)! How can recyclers take advantage of this clean plastics waste stream and create value with it?

HPRC has made a Healthcare Plastics: Guidance for Recyclers just for this purpose. Learn more about it and download a copy right here.
