    as long as it all gets shipped "away." Sometimes I feel like the whole "stash your trash" mantra is part of the problem, because we're so drilled to get all garbage out of our sight immediately Maybe if we had more trash laying around our streets people would have a better feel for all the waste we produce and be less nonchalant about throwing things "away." Thanks for all your efforts, I know it can be frustrating, but I think we have no other choice but to keep trying to point out the insanity of our disposable ways.

      with "plastic form machines" ... all the plastic bottle caps, bottles for all products, product packaging made of plastic, plastic this and that and all the huge expensive machines sending them through a conveyer belt...... etc. etc. etc. etc., with oil companies cashing in, too, will it ever end?  

      It's a complicated industry committed to production, an industry that I just don't see ever coming to an end.  And don't get me started on plastic toys... that industry starting in the late 40s helped cause the BOOM on many products made of plastic.  And Tupperware.  ha!

      Great diary and thank you for what you are doing!
