Op-ed: Nuclear reprocessing and Yucca Mountain are non-starters 9.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
William Shugart’s April 1 op-ed, “Reprocessing nuclear waste and Yucca Mountain worth another look,” needs “another look.” Appeals to reprocess fuel and re-investigate Yucca Mountain (a project I worked on for nearly four years) fall short on a number of fronts. First, although France, Great Britain, Japan and Russia have opted to reprocess spent reactor fuel from power plants, consider a sampling of countries that have not: the U.S., Canada, Finland, Sweden, South Korea and Germany. A majority ...

Op-ed: Holiday packaging is even prettier if it's recycled 18.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Most of us love the holidays. We love the giving, receiving and the look on friends and family’s faces when they tear open the gift-wrap and open the box. If they are kids, they ask us to undo the twist ties, cut open the plastic, and take their dolls or action figures out of the plastic shipping mold and out of the secondary plastic packaging. Before you know it, you have several bags of holiday debris. Many of us shop online now, which adds an additional aspect of packaging. Shipping requires ...

Yampa Valley Sustainability Council offers green holiday guide 24.11.2016 Steamboat Pilot
In this season of celebration, decoration, gift giving and travel, Americans generate more waste and use more energy. Between Thanksgiving and New Year's Day, the volume of household waste increases 25 percent, and 33 percent more food is thrown away during the holidays. To green up the holidays — and the other months of the year — Yampa Valley Sustainability Council offers 10 tips to make your holidays easier on the planet. 1) Make your holiday feast a Zero Waste gathering Ideally, serve food on dishware that can be washed and reused. If you need to serve on single-use tableware, purchase compostable products from The Green Company but make sure to compost it rather than throwing it in the trash. You can reserve your DIY Zero Waste event kit from YVSC today. Reduce your food waste by planning each meal, composting food scraps and eating (or freezing) any leftovers.

Colorado Master Gardeners: Composting in the Yampa Valley 29.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Compost: to rot your unused organic material in a way that it can be used as a compliment and amendment to existing soil. Composting in rural Colorado — a region robust with wildlife and challenged by severe weather — can be tricky, but it can be done. And it should be. Composting is a very important factor in the sustainability of our existence, as it both reduces our waste and impact on the environment and improves our depleted soil, which, in turn, improves our environment. The how is the challenge, but it’s easier than you might think. Compost is a natural process of organic decomposition, and if done right, it will not attract wildlife or pests, will not be affected by weather, and will provide you with an amazing, free amendment for your soil. Items you will need include the following. • A bin — This can be purchased or homemade, but should be no bigger than one cubic yard. • A starter pile — This should include two parts woody or brown material (dried leaves, sticks, straw, etc) and one part ...

Community Agriculture Alliance: Skip the potluck — team build while getting dirty 13.5.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Those office potlucks can be fun for holidays, and happy hour get-togethers are OK once in a while. But why not shake it up a bit and try something new for employee or organizational team building? What better way to get to know your coworkers or club mates than by planting trees or volunteering together for environmental projects? The ongoing and partnership programs of Yampa Valley Sustainability Council need groups to help with everything from ReTree planting to serving on Zero Waste crews at special events. The work is more fun, beneficial and likely less caloric that those “same old, same old” group gatherings. Following are a few of the opportunities for team bonding. • Routt County Community Clean-up Day celebrates its 10th year for this half-day, outdoor service event set for May 21.

Talking Green program focuses on SmartWool's approach to sustainability 21.4.2016 Steamboat Pilot
If someone buried wool in an active compost pile, little would be left under that dirt in six months. “Wool is a natural fiber that biodegrades over time. If we buried a 100 percent wool garment for six months, it would lose a substantial percent of its wool mass to bio-deterioration,” explained Anne Duane, quality assurance manager at SmartWool, which is headquartered next to Steamboat Springs Airport. Making clothing composed mostly of natural fibers is one part of the corporate sustainability efforts at the company that was started locally in 1994 and has since grown to a global brand selling in 37 countries worldwide. Duane will discuss the sustainability successes and challenges of SmartWool as part of the “How Green is Your Sweater” educational program for the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council’s next Talking Green at 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 26 upstairs at Aurum Food & Wine, 811 Yampa St. With 67 employees at its global headquarters in Steamboat, SmartWool is an industry leader in active ...
