How many festivals or events have you attended where you'd wish they'd provided recycling?What about when you go to a restaurant or fast-food takeaway and you're given your food in plastic containers, styro-foam (polystyrene) cups? Or maybe you get frustrated with plastic straws at your local bar? This is exactly why Tara Dodson, founder of Full Circle Resource Management set up her business out of frustration.
