Expanding on the actions of its many environmentally conscious residents and businesses, San Francisco recently became the first U.S. city to legally mandate the recycling of food. The law went into effect on the 21st of October and has had an incredibly positive reception. Under the law, all homes, apartments, businesses, and restaurants are required to place food waste into green bins to be collected alongside normal recycling and trash. For many involved, composting is simple to adapt to. It’s also an easy and straightforward way to feel like you’re doing something to combat climate change.
