Styrofoam is hard to recycle - but this company figured out how to do it at a profit

Styrofoam, or polystyrene foam, is hard to recycle because it is mostly air. The material makes up one-third of landfill waste, and we make 15 million metric tons of it every year.

Covid-19 Diary : Thursday 5 August, 2021

Tuesday saw the world total of reported Covid cases pass through 200 million.  Here in the US we’re just over 36 million cases, and rising now at a new rate of 100k or greater every day.
