Real Recycling for Massachusetts Reaches 500 Members; Pushes for meaningful recycling reform, opposes costly and ineffective bottle bill expansionPosted on March 15, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
This is the short minded attitude that some business owners who put their immediate profits as more important than a some care for their environmental surrounds. For too long this attitude has pervaded. In the past it was gotten away with because there were less people and less plastic trash. Now with more people and manufacturers producing more and more plastic packaging, and manufacturers absolving themselves of any responsibility of the problems their packaging causes once disposed of, the time has come to face up to these issues. A shift in the way we used to do this is needed to attain a new sustainable balance. This is going to involve incentive schemes for both consumers and manufacturers to take more responsibility for their actions. Only then will we be able to manage this lifestyle without sacrificing our environment. Let’s not forget the life style we enjoy depends a large part on our interaction with our environment. Why should that be sacrificed for the sake of the profits of a few?
