Recycling and Climate Change

If you asked a million people what they're doing to combat climate change, "I recycle" would probably be the most common answer. 


Unfortunately, recycling is related to climate change mitigation only in a very limited way, and that linkage has gotten more tenuous over time as recycling markets have become more complicated and in some cases counter-intuitive in their impact.  


We're organizing a few materials specific to the topic of individual action and recycling as Jump Thoughts to the left for your exploration.


You can explore the much larger topic of recycling and its relationship to climate change through the Recycling Index Entry attached to this thought as a Parent Thought.
