I wonder, if people’s main objective were to simply reduce (drastically) or eliminate trash that goes into their garbage can(s), before entering a landfill.
Perhaps that might help us clean up our ‘act’.
Maybe it would influence us to peer in both directions – where this trash came from and where it’s going.
“What can I do to minimize or eliminate this?”
How many of society’s problems could be solved?
I’m slightly beside myself that we’ve made it into the 21st century without a clearly defined solution to this.
It’s so simple. If, out of necessity a bridge is built, so be it.
