This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will discuss the world problem of single use plastics with Bag Monster Andy Keller.
In 2004, Andy Keller, now ChicoBag president, took a trip to his local landfill after spending the day landscaping his backyard. He was horrified by what he saw. Single-use bags were visually the dominant article at the landfill that day, blanketing the landscape in a thin mix of white and beige plastic. On his way home he began to notice plastic bags everywhere, caught in trees and on fence posts, half drowned in gutter puddles and blowing in the streets like urban tumbleweeds.
That day Andy vowed to stop using single-use bags. Inspired, Andy dropped a few bucks on a second hand sewing machine and began sewing what would ultimately become the first ChicoBag® brand reusable bag.
We won't to shed as much light on this cause as possible. We're talking plastics here on The Fruit today. Join us!

These measures allow us to provide one of the lowest costs for waste removal in the region. We are working to help reduce filling up our landfills with materials that cannot breakdown over years but sit in the landfills and is a danger to the environment. The environmental impact of landfills is a complex issue. Recycling helps prevent landfills from becoming overfilled, which lessen the danger of environment report of global warming. A surge in new curbside programs, with the steady performance of local collection services, and a rise in the capture of core household materials such as paper and containers are all key factors in the reduction of disposed tonnage.

That's not pretty, is it? You don't need to see this picture in great detail to really see that the continuous stream of garbage dumped into landfills all over our world are not ever going to break down and go peacefully back into Mother Nature's bosom
This is just one truck dumping it's collection on top of millions of tons of the same variety of materials. On Earth day, we could talk about all the ways human population growth and modern agricultural and industrial practices are poisoning our air and water, wiping out species and destroying pristine, delicate habitats for millions of species. But instead, we're going to talk about what YOU can do to stop the madness.
Whereas last week, we spoke about the Collective Consciousness and how we contribute to the vibration that affects all sentient beings, this week, we're going to talk about how our daily habits, our preferences and our decisions affect the community, and the wider planet.
Let's Honor Mother Earth by waking up to the very simple fact that we cannot continue certain activities and expect the earth to remain unchanged. The good news is that Earth will survive. She will heal. The bad news is that we, along with many other species, will not. Please join us to begin a conversation that hopefully takes us into a new way of thinking about what is possible for humanity and this planet.
Please join the conversation Wednesday from 7pm to 8pm.

Our mission is to provide the best innovative reusable/recyclable products on the planet. Our partnership continues throughout the life cycle of our products. You determine when your BELL reaches the end of its life usage and we will take it back for free for secure recycling. In turn we will offer future discount incentives on purchases as part of our partnership.
One of our biggest concerns driving us to get this project off the ground is the amount of plastic bottle waste that is being produced by the onetime usage of disposable plastic water and soda bottles. Over 60,000,000 plastic bottles are entering our landfills every day, a staggering statistic. This is something that should be unacceptable to all of us and is not sustainable for the future of our planet.

AWARE uses recycling, education, the arts, collaboration, job creation and economic development to build healthy Communities.
It is our goal to build a sustainable model that can be reconstructed anywhere on the planet and begin helping that community. The purpose of each model is to help local and global economies, families, culture and the environment of that region.
In collaboration with Will Make Film for Food we are combining recycling, film, technology and innovation to create high quality films and film equipment that is affordable and open to projects with a positive message.
In these past 8 years of building; we've learned a lot. One of those being: for very little money, we can create a lot of jobs and do a lot of good in our community.
We have already secured a warehouse! The AWAREhouse! Right now it is our goal to open 3 more recycling centers prior to the end of the year. This will create 18 jobs in our community and give us an opportunity to collect more recyclable material to turn into art!!!! Previously, with just one recycling center in operation we were able to help over 15 people off of the streets and keep more than 2 million pounds of waste out of our landfills.

Does you happiness depend upon old beleifs that are no longer valid? Are your ideas about Love still current? If we stopped for just a moment and put our busy lives on hold, would we be able to answer these questions?
My special guest, Betsy Chasse, co-creator behind the sleeper hit, What The Bleep Do We Know, asked herself these and other questions and came up with some surprising answers. She wrote a book about it called, Tipping Sacred Cows, and I can't wait to hear more. Betsy also promised to share a few tidbits about the sequel to the What The Bleep movie due later this year.
Small Warning: Betsy is very outspoken on certain subjects and her language reflects it. Love that Blogtalk Radio doesn't restrict, censor or bleep. Hope you do too.
Our Let's Stir Things Up segment takes a look at how we're doing with recycling all that paper and plastic -- are we making progress at preserving our planet's resources or losing the battle? Are we more or less aware than we were 10 years ago?
Finally, a few helpful details about the year ahead -- last Sunday was the first day of the Tibetan New Year, and we have just enetered the year of the (male) Water Horse!

When Ron Gonen, co-founder of RecycleBank stepped down as CEO of his company, he had to determine his next move. It wasn't until he was approached by Michael Bloomberg, the 108th Mayor of NYC, that it all became clear what his next steps should be.
Now as the Deputy Commissioner of Sanitation, Recycling and Sustainability, Ron is working on developing and implementing a plan to divert 30% of New York's waste stream from landfills by 2017. "If we can figure out what to do with our waste stream here in the city," he says, "it can act as a model for the rest of the country because our waste stream is the most complex in North America."
In the 27th episode of SRO Conversations, Ron discusses some surprising facts when it comes to NYC's waste stream; dives into how working in the world of politics differs from the familiar world of entrepreneurship; how to motivate people through meaning; and living one's life with integrity.
