A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar Thu. 3/1/18 11:01am northguineahills:

Not just marketers, Sugarwolf. My parents use zip-lock bags instead of tupperware or other reusable containers b/c they're "cheap". And they only recycle what is legally mandated. When I was visiting both of my brothers (in their separate abodes), I noticed neither recycled, even though they were legally mandated by their respective cities to do so. Since then, I got one of them to do so, and the other does so when convenient. Material waste doesn't even register to many people, and it drives me insane.

One of the villages near me is going to start charging for plastic bags and OH BOY the controversy!!!
Avatar Thu. 3/1/18 11:12am northguineahills:

and unlike NYC, stores don't try to double bag everything in this town (I bring my own), and minimize any packaging for takeout to just cardboard, and ask if you need napkins/cutlery etc. The first time I told a bodega guy I didn't need a little bag for my beer I just bought (had a bag), he looked at me like I had three heads).

I'm lucky I live in a town that is aggressive when it comes to recycling.
  Thu. 3/1/18 11:12am rw:

Does recycling really work? I always wonder what really happens to all that stuff I separate and throw in the green bin. Sometimes I feel like the main objective is to teach my kids to be responsible and maybe they'll help create a world with less waste.

There's a big thing in London at the moment, and in the wider drinks industry, to stop using plastic drinking straws. A lot of it comes from the final episode of the David Attenborough Blue Planet TV show, which showed how much plastic is in the oceans

RW you should contact TerraCycle. They do amazing things.

there's an ordinance against plastic bags in the town i just moved from, but it's not enforced.
i personally always use plastic over paper if i have to use anything; but i reuse what i can and often can carry everything in my hands,arms,pockets & backpack.

Re marketers: There was a public ad club presentation/forum locally recently I wanted to attend just out of biased curiosity. “Current landscape... trends...insights... building a modern brand...” I’d expect to encounter smart creative people in eager satisfied pursuit of things the rest of up specifically regard as irritating, intrusive, too deeply manipulative...much more so in tech age.

i see talk of recycling and waste here, which also irks me (the latter, the former does NOT). i volunteer with the Lower East Side Ecology Center in nyc, and used to be paid to stand on a nyc street corner for 3+ hours for 3days/week. people would bring food scraps and dump them into a bin. in 2016, 50,000 pounds of food waste was collected at "my office" . i loved this job. i'd tawk recycling with them (& pet dogs and coo at children and gossip and...). and now, a friend has a sensor project re composting. he's tryna raise money (wait, so is wfmu) and i'm helping. so if you can too, neat. pardon this pandering. thank you. www.ioby.org...

Avatar Thu. 3/1/18 11:19am coelacanth∅:

true. melting down aluminum, shredding plastic and crushing glass (to be used in roads, which there should be a moratorium on new ones) is probably a small % as efficient as responsible packaging and consuming would be.

rw, my niece and nephew visited a single stream recycling facility (a class trip) and they say it really does get done. separated and presumably recycled. the rule where my sister lives is "if you're not sure, put it in the recycling bin". where i lived in nj years ago the rule was "if you're not sure, throw it out".

There's a plastic bag ordinance here in Chicago and stores charge 7 cents per bag. The city had counted on raking in a ton of cash from it and the actual intake has been waaaay less than the projections because people have been diligent about bringing their own bags or not using them at all. Makes me v. happy. Stick it to the man by being environmentally conscious!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/1/18 11:30am melinda:

There should be far more recycling of food waste. I use a curbside composting service and it's great, they allow meat & dairy scraps too since they are a large facility and candle safely compost them. And they leave bags of compost if you want.

@Magdo (i masculanized yr name), @rw i'm glad yr into food waste as well ("take my food waste, plz!"). here's 2 websites; the latter belongs to Sashti, the man who is raising money for the compost project. oh, i think france passed a law about stores NOT throwing out dated food. and you can do a DuckDuckGo search for "Trader Joe's ex-president to open store selling expired food".
