Noted. I think once this becomes public knowledge, and more are informed, the demand for recycling and biodegradable materials will prompt a huge market. As always, we have to be on the lookout for corporate greed.

Thanks Cal for the link to the article.I agree with the article's conclusion that "the EU should put more efforts into waste prevention in order to become more resource-efficient" Read and noted.

Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854

When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
Cree Prophecy

Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.

What a madness! European politicians are chattering about environment and climate protection and are too lazy or corrupt or stupid or whatever to stop stupid people from producing waste and destruction.
