LDCD received an email from a lady whose daughter was doing research about recycling and who came across the LDCD Recycling Page during her research. Her daughter wanted us to know about an article about recycling that she found. She found the article on the Berkey Filters WEB site, it was written by Lynn Taylor who works for Berkey Filters. We agree that it is an article that is worth reading and have a link to a copy of the article here.
