The reason you don’t hear much about recycling these types of plastic films is that most municipalities don’t take back items intended to wrap food. One exception may be sandwich bags, which are made from easy-to-recycle polyethylene, as long as any hard (i.e. “Ziploc”) components are removed and they are rinsed free of any food debris or stains.
New York City Council Member Margaret Chin, Borough President Scott Stringer, and State Senator Daniel Squadron sent a strongly worded letter today to Larry A. Silverstein expressing concern over the hiring of Regional Scaffolding and Hoisting Company at the 4 World Trade Center site.

Opening Friday, July 9th, You Were There is an exhibition that examines how time affects an artist’s practice, attitude and overall outlook. It broadly investigates the trajectory of the exhibiting artists’ output by showing one work from 2005 and one work from 2010 by each artist, indicating how a relatively small but significant amount of time can change an artist’s perspective. The subject is not time itself, but rather the ever-changing vicissitudes of artistic practice both internal to an artist and as conceived by a viewer as time passes.

It sure would be nice if we could obtain all of our food and drink items from local sources, but sugar provides an excellent example of why such a desire may remain a pipe dream in the United States for a long time to come. The sugar we consume that is produced domestically comes from sugar cane grown in Hawaii and the Southeast and sugar beet from the Upper Midwest, Pacific Northwest, California and elsewhere. However, it is likely milled and refined hundreds if not thousands of miles from where it is harvested, and then shipped all over the country—causing untold greenhouse gas emissions—in various sized packages for our consumption in our coffee, on our cereal and, for some of us, in our cocktails.
