Houston Environmental News Update December 13, 2017

The newest Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, opens on Friday. The predecessor, The Force Awakens, tells the story of a professional recycler (“scavenger”) who becomes a hero with the opportunity to save the galaxy. OK, kindof a stretch, but recyclers ARE heroes. The Star Wars message that hope and determination in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds is one that we, as an environmental community, must embrace. May the force be with you!
