Hi all, Just a reminder that if you own a boat (lucky you!) and have it shrink-wrapped over the winter, to please consider asking your marina or local transfer station to recycle it! The vast majority of all that plastic goes right into the waste stream and it's all recyclable. They often use it to make plastic deck material or more wrap for next year. I work in the boating industry and it's amazing to see all the thousands of boats along the coasts in cold-water regions that are wrapped up, knowing that very little gets reused. Thanks!
