Amid a global pandemic, most find themselves inside their homes more than ever.

One system in question is how our local, state, and federal governments—as well as every citizen in the country—practices sustainability.

In January, we sat down with government officials from ReWorks San Antonio, an agency of the city’s Solid Waste Management Department, that aims to connect businesses to cost-effective recycling solutions and promote those businesses among consumers who value social responsibility.
