Your old pizza box isn’t actually too greasy to recycle

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Domino’s is working to educate people that even the greasiest of boxes (where 20% of the total weight is grease!) can go through most city’s recycling systems with no issue. If you’ve long tossed your pizza boxes into the trash, figuring—along with many other Americans—that the grease and cheese leftover on the cardboard meant it couldn’t be recycled, Domino’s wants you to think again. It turns out that nearly three quarters of U.S. residents have a recycling program that accepts pizza boxes, and some grease and cheese stuck to the cardboard doesn’t affect the quality of the recycled product.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

A new microorganism munches on cardboard to create a source of energy. If your home looks anything like mine, Jeff Bezos should be paying rent. Cardboard Amazon boxes have taken over. Tiny boxes. Unusable boxes. Boxes that are painstakingly designed to be efficient and recyclable , sure, but boxes that end up in the trash anyway. The problem isn’t that you or I don’t recycle them.

Superbrewed Food’s cheese is fermented in a tank, from the same microbes that already live in your body. A sample of shredded mozzarella from a new company called Superbrewed Food tops a personal pizza, and it’s gooey and stretchy, with a slightly salty tang.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Recycling companies are making a small change to their systems, which could dramatically increase what we’re able to recycle. Have you ever stood in front of the trash can with your Starbucks cup and wondered whether to toss it in the garbage or in the recycling bin? You’re not alone . Until recently, the right answer has often been the trash . Disposable coffee cups, milk cartons, takeout boxes, and other food packaging has a plastic lining to make sure liquids and oils don’t seep through. But most recycling systems in the U.S. aren’t designed to process these plastic-coated containers: The plastic can jam up recycling machines, and if the plastic somehow makes it through the process, paper mills won’t be able to use it.

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Close to 86% of people moving stay in the same state that they’re currently living in, according to a new LendingTree study. The past year saw lots of moving trucks, cardboard wardrobe boxes, and friends pizza-bribed into helping unload U-Hauls, but the destination of the majority of those packing-tape-wielding relocators didn’t have to change the two-letter geographic code on their mail.
