When Recycling, Reducing, Reusing, how much are we TRULY helping to preserve our environment?


Do you think we are mislead by the consumer market to believe that by recycling our unwanted items or trash, "using hand blow-dryers" in public restrooms or by "going electronic" in all our daily affairs-as part of the Paper Reduction Act, that we are really "saving a tree, planting a tree, keeping our earth clean or preserving our wildlife"? How much control do "The People" really have over these aspects of living and survival?

    If more people used public transport then more people would have resistance to germs and viruses. I do however agree that the longer you can put off recycling something the better it is for the environment. I wrote a hub on ways of reusing newspaper

    Thank you so much for sharing this. Indeed complicated answers-let alone complicated subject at hand here. I do agree that we are "separate" amongst ourselves. We now live in a "self" world more now than ever, heading in different directions.

    Local clean is good. But too often, a clean neighborhood is filling a dirty landfill.

    True and not to mention what it takes to build and build and build more offices, fast food places, shopping areas, large parking lots to accommodate us all and on and on and on.....doing more harm than we realize.

    Those that want to end the use of oil based products would put many people out of work and deprive the nation of revenue. No one has come up with an alternative that can do the things oil can. Pause for oil spill joke. "You can't spill sunshine."
