Reduce. Reuse. Reap a little cash on the side?
One of the unpleasant indignities of living on an island in Southeast Alaska is that we are forced — in a very tangible way — to confront how much waste we create. That confrontation comes in the form of a bill. With space at premium, we pay to bale, ship and dispose of much of our trash inside Washington state.
Alaska is proud of its parks, especially the Gates of the Arctic, thank you very much.
