Has anyone done an LCA of stone or mineral paper? I see claims of photo-degradability but would love to know more. Anyone have any experience with this material?

I am a leading plastic materials expert. You are being given incorrect advice. Calcium carbonate-filled PE can be recycled multiple times with no loss in properties. Check 2 if you want hard data on plastics and the environment rather than false rumors.

Personal anecdote related to this subject:
I’ve just put in a couple of hours of web search and phone calls to understand specifically what to put and not to put into my blue recycling waste bin in Fulton County. After glass bottles and beverage aluminum cans it gets quite ambiguous and confusing very quickly.
Maybe it’s just me. But if I’m like the average person, and Fulton is like the average county, there appears to be a large upside opportunity in providing homes with much clearer instructions. Which would lead to a more valuable and less contaminated mix of blue bin contents. Which could bring by significant productivity gains along the recycling value chain, I suppose.
