Opinion: A local solution to plastic pollution

Posted

We no longer recycle plastic in Taos, due to the expense. Across the country plastic is piling up. A movement is emerging-- concerned citizens are recycling plastic locally and creating functional art. Taos should join the revolution.

Instead of burying our plastics in the dump, let's invest in small, plastic recycling centers. At preciousplastic.com are free blueprints for four simple machines which will turn plastic into recycled functional art.

The town should fund plastic recycling seed projects, perhaps in coordination with the Taos Landfill Board and UNM-Taos. Working together, we can recycle our own plastic and prove that Taos is Art.
