"Big oil lied about recycling plastic"


          

Shocking.. I know.

recycling plastic is more expensive than making it.. so guess what we are doing with all this plastic?

Now, it's just the same truck picking up both garbage and recycling. I put in work separating plastic, glass & metal from paper. Rinsing out jars. Makes me feel like a chump.

And the only way to make it work was to charge a tax on manufacturers who produce new plastic that made using recycled plastic cheaper.

In the 90s and beyond of all of the innovations and branding, and then mentions the subsequent death of those programs.

"NPR tracked down almost a dozen projects the industry publicized starting in 1989. All of them shuttered or failed by the mid-1990s. Mobil's Massachusetts recycling facility lasted three years, for example. Amoco's project to recycle plastic in New York schools lasted two. Dow and Huntsman's highly publicized plan to recycle plastic in national parks made it to seven out of 419 parks before the companies cut funding."

I'd be fine if we had "corporate profiling", the way we (should not) have racial profiling

the bullshit my eyes have seen could kill a an adult cow.

they keep talm about;

"the market will sort itself out, consumers will drive market forces to make companies make moral choices when it comes to clean/renewable methods"

like...the point of business is to MAKE MONEY and MAXIMIZE PROFITS. I don't think that there is anything wrong with this fact but it should never be allowed to run without checks and balances.

Why would I even think about thinking any business to have consumer rights and well being in mind?
