The Grim Reality
This person works at a waste management plant. According to them, there’s no amount of recycling mankind can do to reverse the effects of the environmental damage consumerism has brought forth to our planet. For every bottle you recycle, there are a million more bottles floating in the sea.
There’s a documentary on Netflix (we forgot the title) that explains how much corruption there is in Big Recycling. Organizations spend millions of dollars to convince consumers to reduce plastic consumption while being the biggest plastic polluters on the planet. And don’t think that certain environmentalist groups have the environment’s interests at heart, either. It’s all about the benjamins.
