The delights of recycling

From Wikipedia

In my view, recycling has two delightful advantages.

Firstly it offers green lifestyle lite - a virtually effortless and pleasingly sanctimonious way to hang onto the old lifestyle.

Secondly it avoids significant changes to the amount of packaging we use. Producers are happy, supermarkets are happy. We are happy. 

Nothing really changes and everyone’s a winner!

Mark - it could be the yoga giving me time to think, although I've only been three times.

Yes. I can remember reuse instead - getting money for taking bottles back to the grocer - and non-use, i.e. not wrapping everything in plastic.

Cogito ergo sum, is that a wrap?

A K Haart said...

Sackers - yes there is little or no reuse and far too much packaging.

Demetrius - "I shop therefore I am". I can't do the Latin without cheating.
