Welcome to the "Is It Just Me?" podcast with Layla K and MJ. This is the podcast about just about any topic where we ask the question, “Is It Just Me?"

May 11, 2022

Recycling has long been touted as a panacea for maintaining a healthy planet earth. In this episode, Layla K takes a quick look back to how it all began and how it's taken hold on society.

Then we dare to ask the question: is recycling working? Have we found a way to create the “biosphere” of repurposed goods on our planet?
