We have to tell the manufacturers of products that we want to purchase ONLY goods made with recycled or can be recycled material
I have never posted a blog before, so please bear with me. I have a lot of opinions, and most of them will tick off a lot of people. I honestly can not understand why the President of the United States does not have to voice to just say... OK from now on all USA manufacturing companies weather it be food or product, can only use materials that are made from post recycled or recycled or easy to recycle materials. NO more styrofoam to go containers allowed, NO more throw away disposable items, once and for all actually MAKE the factories do what Green Americans want them to do.
We can not do it alone, I have never been asked by a manufacturer - OH hey Tami, what is your opinion of our company making tons of non recycleable products to clog and poison our environment? Jeeez give someone that has power to talk to a multitude of people at one time get our message out and actually be able to do something about it.
Couldnt Wal-Mart start having bulk dispensers for shampoo and laundry detergent. Buy a plastic container from them, bring it back to the store for a 5% discount or something and reuse that container over and over and over? I would def do it, and I am sure a lot of other people would as well. Stop making those tiny disposable plastic bottles of crap and yogurt - yea they fit nice in a lunch box, but come on... people can buy in large containers and divy(SP?) it up into portions at home. SIGH... My mind is full of a lot of stuff. Don't know how to go about putting it all down. Why cant there be a law so no one can put harmful chemicals/hormones into Sun screen that negatively effects frogs and aquatic life forms? :( Most people just dont know about all the problems, but maybe if the stores HAD to list at the store the negative some products cause to wildlife or humans the majority of shoppers would not purchase that brand of product. ????
