The individual actions we take to reduce waste are important. But to stem the avalanche of stuff, we also need system-wide solutions.

Encouraging article. The steps/ideas are so commonsense and do-able. It's such a negligent affront to our planet that such measures aren't taken on a wider scale, given the success in reduction of waste by significant percentages in cities such as Seattle where it's already in place. And seriously, what is wrong with people - the consumers, without even pointing fingers at the producers and purveyors of the rubbish - they walk into a Subway and won't even refuse the plastic bag that wraps the sandwich that is already wrapped to begin with - or buy a cup of coffee in a disposable cup with a disposable lid at a drive-thru 5 minutes from their own home.

All four are extremely important. Those that don't like regulation might not like it but I dont' like their stuff messing up my environment worse than they don't like regulation.

Very nice , I do feel sometimes as if I'm in the minority as to composting , no plastics that I can avoid , clean
recycling , Out of about a dozen neighbors that I know near me only one other than myself composts .
The others claim to have no time or cannot be bothered .
I did offer to take the old halloween pumpkins that were destined for trash day and got to compost those .
