With our world’s growing waste problem, ways to minimize and recycle are becoming increasingly important. We are always told by our parents and friends to remember to recycle, but what does that really entail? Can recycling do more harm than good? Mitchell Pham, a senior environmental science student at the University of Texas at Austin, explains the phenomena behind recycling. Mitchell Pham is a fourth-year environmental science student turned business enthusiast at The University of Texas at Austin.
