Conservation Tips

Plastic items can create serious damage to our planet’s ecosystem and our health. Luckily, there are many alternatives to plastic products that benefit both us and our planet. Here are a few reasons to switch to reusable items.

Where We’ve Been

Firstar Recycling Facility – Omaha

How Can We Make Recycling More Beneficial?

About a year ago we hosted our first tour of the Firstar Fiber recycling facility in Omaha, Nebraska. CEO Dale Gubbels guided us through the facility and taught us about the process behind running a recycling facility. Since then, we have hosted tours at various recycling facilities around the state, and each time I gain a better understanding of the process and learn more about the issues facing the recycling industry.
