recycle
Toxic_Kisses "Activists, industry reps, and government officials are gathering in Seattle,
Wash., this week for the National Recycling Congress, but the mood isn't
exactly festive. Seems recycling has fallen on hard times: International
commercial markets for many recyclables are down, fiber markets are diving,
and a decade of growth in recycling rates has platitude or even dropped.
Delegates at the meeting hope to reenergize the recycling movement, which
has, after all, seen some success in the past years. For example, manufacturers
are increasingly taking responsibility for the entire lifecycle of their
products, and consumers are demanding goods with more recycled content.
Nonetheless, the nation continues to produce and consume ever more stuff,
and the notion that recycling doesn't make a difference seems to be as
persistent as Styrofoam." - Seattle Times, Craig Welch, 14 Jan 2002

User24 people are now starting to ask if recycling actually uses any less energy than it saves?

well, you know what? fuck it!

If it pulls society together toward a unified (but, strictly speaking, useless) aim, then so much the better.

People must learn to realise that it's not the actual value, it's the perceived value. If you buy something for 2, but I can only buy it for 10, I'll willingly pay 8 for yours, is that the actual value? no, the actual value is in fact less than 2, but the perceived value is greater

In this example, all the more so due to the fact that I'm getting a bargain, hell I'd even pay 10.50 for it if it's on sale.
