It's okay, if you want to believe that, I can not change your mind.





So, you are german and some german corporation gets under your skin.

You brought up the company and suggested googling them. Obviously there is something about them that you don't like.

Also, it isn't about what I believe. The article was about a tour hosted by that company where they explained some ideas. None of those ideas involved renting clothes, as BlueJacket stated, and you claimed to have similar concerns. It isn't about belief, it just wasn't there.

I enjoyed reading that article and watching the little snippits of Info. I've always been a firm believer that we throw out 'stuff' that could've been repurposed/reprocessed.

Good stuff,
Johnny

I will have read of this later when I put the young fella to bed, reading just a snippet reminded me of an guy in his 90s I used to work for and chat too a fair bit. We often talked about his early years and he used to tell me how everything was recycled and reused, everything, if it wasn't fit for purpose it was turned into something else until it quite literally was just dust.

He would explain how we just have no idea what it's like to have nothing, he was amazed how we have turned into a throw away society, he was from a time long gone and when people were clearly much more resilient than they are now.

What are the biggest creators of waste? Is it private homes refuse, cars, power stations, supermarkets?? Maybe commercial, industrial agricultural and domestic are better examples.

I’m just trying to work out the problem here, sure all the plastic in the sea’s are a big problem, I see rental here being as simple as paying 50% more for each product with a plastic bottle, which is returned to you when you hand the bottle back (same with McDonalds packaging).

But then you still need to make recycling cheaper than making from scratch but that is economics, if we want to reduce plastic then put a tax on non recycled packaging to give to recycling companies, unfortunately we just have to accept our demand for the lowest price disposable lifestyle are counter productive to the earth we live in, it’s a pretty simple solution.

My Mom told me about when she was a kid in WW2 that she would recycle the foil off a piece of gum. Not so sure how relevant that is but you made me remember that.
