Re: “Recycling plastic food wrap

Nice article! A few things, though. Since these items can't really be "recycled," it's important to focus on the first two r's, reduce and reuse. If you reduce the amount of plastic baggies and wrappers you use, then there isn't a need to recycle them. I would suggest investing in some reusable containers or reusing the baggies, as mentioned in the article. Also, be aware of certain items that are said to be "biodegradable" and "compostable." This may be true if the item is sent to a composting facility, but it might not necessarily work in your personal compost pile at home.

Regarding the dry cleaner bags, it depends on what community you are in. Some counties might accept the bags with the grocery bags, but some might not, depending on the market for plastics there. I would just go in and ask!
