Recycling or Conservation. No brainer, conservation wins every time. Heres why.
Recycle means to take garbage and use it again. Probably the worst form
of recycling is the one we are most familiar with and most state
governments are on board with. Pick up stuff curbside. Have
special crew. Have special trucks. Have special sorting plants. Clean
items. Try to sell it to anyone. This process usually winds up
being very dirty. Think about the process. Of course we create
jobs but why not use those jobs on something less destructive to
society. We waste resources and money on trucks and plants and water
and gas just to get the products to the county level. Nobody wants the
recycled stuff. Why become its garbage. If we can sell it or give
it away then who ever winds up with the garbage will likely dump the
product or worse reprocess the product. Reprocess takes more chemicals
and energy and creates more pollution. So recycling is doomed from the
Repurpose is better. Thats taking garbage as it is and using it
for another purpose, much better than recycling. But in the end
you still need to deal with the garbage.
If you really want to help the world and the environment don't recycle.
Instead conserve. Conserve means don't use. Be cheap and stingy. Don't
buy it don't use it. For every bottle of water I don't buy that
will create less demand for the manufacturers to make another to
replace it (more dirt and filth and damage to the environment). You say
bottled water is cleaner. Not true, there are no regulations on bottled
water and my tap water is tested every hour. I save money and at the
same time help save the world. Capitalism thrives on waste. Buy, buy
and buy. Keep american strong (and dirty and discusting). In the old
days America was a lot dirtier with manufacting you say. Thats
because we exported our dirty manufacting over seas. Check out
the air and water in china these days. The world keeps getting more
poulated so send the polllution somewhere else so we don't have to look
at it. Not in my backyard. Not in my perfectly groomed and
fertlizer and pesticide soaked beautiful bright green perfectly
manicured yard. STOP CONSUMING. The machine is coming to take our
jobs anyway so resistance is futile. You don't have to prove to me how
rich you are or pretend to be, You are killing us all and making
the world a worse place to live. Save the world stop consumption. I beg
each and every one of you to stop consuming.
I know there are to many people roaming the earth and consuming
varaciously with no end in sight. In fact people still think
consumption is a good and god given right. Like the fat cigar smoking
boss image of old, consumption is going to be seen as such hopefully
sooner than later. Lets bring being cheap and stingy into
"style". Be cheap and be proud. Wear old clothes, drive your new car 15
years until it dies. Better yet use Lyft. Or public
transportation god forbid. Snobs are bad. Conservationist are good.
Some say well if I don't ride on that airplane its still going to go
pollute the air anyway, I might as well be on it. Again if you
don't do it and a lot of others follow suit than the demand will go
down and the air will be cleaner. Don't worry about the economy.
Like I said the machine is going to take your job anyway sooner or
later no matter how important you think you are or how hard you think
your job is. Who cares. Lets bring the world down in a
revolution of conservation.
For a number of years now I have seen every product that comes into my
house be it an apple (fruit) or an apple computer as junk in. I see in
my minds eye a piece of junk eventually winding up on the curbside
going to some landfill or to be recycled into more filth. Think of
the Prime, UPS and FedEx trucks as the garbage in trucks. We only
notice the garbage out trucks. If we can cut down on the garbage in
trucks than we will equally cut down on the garbage out trucks.
My sewer company charges me by how much water I use. Good
assumption as the freshwater supply coming into my house is mostly
going to reflect the sewage coming out. Think of the garbage in
trucks in the same way. Every piece of in garbage they deliver will one
day, sooner or later be taken away by the garbage out trucks.
Taken to some mountain of garbage somewhere. Hopefully not in or
near my neighborhood. As long as I don't see it who cares?
I must admit that I do drive by some mountains of garbage now and then
and man they are discusting. Usually when I am on my way to get some in
I am not saying don't consume. We have to. We are filthy dirty
animals that produce waste. Each and everyone of us is. Even the
queen of England is. Maybe we should thank mother nature for each
and everything we come in contact with. Might slow us down to consume
less. Whatever it takes slow down people. Think about it before
you consume it. Just because you can "afford" it doesn't give you the
right to consume it. A lot of pain and suffering and damage to the
earth has gone into producing what you believe you can afford and have
the god given right to do so. I remember the old consumer reports
pollution survey that had this multiple choice question: what is worse
for the environment; a) paper, b) plastic, c) children. The answer was
c, children. Children create an overwhelming amount of waste. They go
to Applebees and throw away food and 1 hour later mom makes them
chicken nuggets. They are swaddled in disposible diapers. They eat
processesed food out of cute little tiny bottles. They constantly
destroy and ruin products and funiture. Isn't that cute jonny put
applesause in daddys ferogami shoes. Oh was daddy mad, hahaha. He had
to go buy new ones. He was mad then but he can laugh at it now, hahaha.
Threw the dirty ones away. Baby Sally threw up in the car and now the
cleaning crew is here spraying toxic chemicals in the car to mask the
smell. I don't blame the children, but I do blame the adults for
not more consiously being away of the damage their kids are doing.
Children don't know any better and I guess the parents don't know any
better either. Mom and Dad are exhausted, they have 3 jobs each,
no child care and they can't save the world by themselves anyway?
Right? You can't always get what you want, you get what you need. Try to need less.
So in summary, Conserve=good. Consume=bad. Lets get a handle on the junk in supply chain. Lower consumption, save the world.
