I have seen take out food containers made to compete w/ Styrofoam.

They are made from sugar cane refuse....
what a natural for RD

Here's one example.

If only I was younger and knew my way thru RD politics
-----------------------------------------
when I was younger , I was in the printing business for a while

We paid to have our scrap paper hauled away
Then, our luck changed.... removal was FREE!!

Got even better.... they paid for our garbage...
From then on - it was just a matter of how much they paid.

Recycling had started

Imagine the cane scrap at those rum factories !!

You are NEVER too old to invest, or earn.
Navigating RD politics is a different story.
