Having sat back and looked at all the ‘evidence’ presented by the HTA under the guidance of the industry ‘charity’ RECOUP you start to recognise its interested parties like BIFFA, Coca Cola et al.. are all working ‘constructively’ to get us all to recycle plastic more and more.
The taupe pot will (of course) reverse massive over production of plastic, stop incineration, reduce the carbon load of reprocessing plastics and in a instant, stop climate collapse.. we will all merrily skip in to a bright new sunrise. Thankyou!
Lobby groups (or charities) sponsored by industry are basically tools to protect profit, the concept of producing less destructive products is as alien as say… getting one of RECOUP’s members to admit that their products contribute to the obesity epidemic. Ironically the sugar tax has proven to be toothless.
Government will gladly pass responsibility to business, who in turn will pass the true cost (both to our planet and our taxes) of plastic back to us mere mortals. Taupe is a con.
and if you really have to, recycle… but be aware that dealing with plastics through incineration is 12 times less fuel-efficient than burning the original stock fuel?
