Re: Boat People Scum
There was an interesting article on the topic of garbage in yesterday's NYT. I bet we can all recall throwing something out that we no longer has a use for, but was fine and had no where else to send it. It isn't really trash at all, it's just stuff we no longer want or need. That clearly needs a better solution.
My wife brings all of our used clothing to the local thrift store. However, they sell very little of it. They simply get paid to have it chopped up into recyclable fibers, an industry I'm told is riddle with corruption. There has to be a better way. They also have standards that are hard to meet in some cases. If something works, but has a clear broken aesthetic piece, they won't take it. Someone might be happy to have it, but it ends up in the trash.
