What a remarkably stupid thing to say. I suggest we are generating too much garbage and disposing of it in a thoughtless manner and this is your response ? Where on earth is the corollary between my post and yours ?

You seem to intimate that I am a lunatic greeny proposing that we eliminate all waste products yet nothing I have said supports your bizarre theory. Otoh, why buy produce in a plastic container which is then simply dumped ? Why not put it into a recyclable bag ? The reality is that we are all going to generate a certain amount of garbage, the reality is that some products pretty much need to be packaged, any sensible person can see that but limiting said amount is surely no bad thing.
