Project Feedback

I love this. Many years ago I was interviewing an old man in Indian whom spoke of the days when his chai was served in a clay cup. After consumption you could throw it on the streets and it would melt back into the earth only to be shaped back into a suitable cup for chai. Today many cities in India burn their plastic in the evening. Who else recalls the time before plastic took over? Thank you for your work at UCCS.
