Recycling Takes A Dump !
« on: August 25, 2018, 10:24:37 AM »
You probably have no idea how recycling works.

Most Americans ó who recycle nearly 87 million tons of waste each year ó likely think that the plastic and paper thrown into those special blue bins gets sorted by some nebulous government agency and automatically becomes an environmentally-friendly product.

But that's not how it works. Recycling, first and foremost, is a business.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Good article. Reuse beats the shit out of recycling, every time.  I'm married to a dedicated recycler, and I do my bit. Ain't no contamination coming from our house (or office, for that matter).
What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
