recycling won't cure the earth, but we do need to do it as much as possible.

This is a good thing, after all, there are people who just don't give a damn and will not do the right thing until forced to. I am amazed when I go shopping to see how many people still get their groceries in yucky stinky plastic bags, people from all generation. It's time all the supermarkets (and other shops) simply stopped providing them. People are notoriously lazy and unthinking. I would love to get a microphone and stop all these people with plastic bags as they exit the shopping centres and ask them why they don't care. See how embarrassed they would be. Ignorant prats.

I guess increasing what can be recycled would increase the amount recycled, but wouldn't recycling food waste constitue composting, and eventually why not just process everything in 1 collection?
