A DIY - Home Made - Pizza, does not have such a ridiculous problem as a useless cardboard box. There was a time when we could buy 1 razor - to
shave with - and thereafter simply purchased a new razor blade replacement. Today we have to buy a plastic razor that is thrown away when blunt and
replaced with more useless plastic. Original authors cum writers could find 1 Quill - ie 1 large birds feather, shave such it had an acceptable tip
and could be then dipped in ink and used, time after time. Today the run pen runs dry and is thrown away to be replaced with more Plastic junk.
Quill eventually replaced by a re-fillable Fountain Pen, oh and even the ink was bought in a small glass container. That was all recycleable.
Old lawn mowers had no Diesel engine, they were simply pushed across the lawn manually, something that served as a useful exercise.
Original Diapers, made out of Cloth, washed after use, and hung out to dry before being used again.
A host of foodstuff was displayed minus a cardboard container, wrapped when purchased and brought home to use or maybe cook.
Just a few Old World Ideas and no doubt you could recall many more. So whose stupid, Ignorant, Greedy wisdom gave birth to the new large Supermarket
and thereby abolished local corner shops ??? For its they who gave Birth to stacks of useless containers and helped construct a new World problem
During my childhood years we had no washing machine, so no one had to replace such when it eventually burnt out.
We had no Fridge or Freezer, so they too created no problem. In fact Yesteryear was a a somewhat sensible period of time. Today, ???????????
Even PCs are helping to ruin our vision faster. Note how many Old Age Pensioners can read without putting glasses on.
I feel sorry for the oncoming years, they will simply worsen , more disposable junk will be introduced and in time we will be taxed for throwing such
