Subject: RE: BS: Doing your Part
It's MY trash and I bought it and I'll do with it what I damn well please!

I've heard that argument over and over. Personally, I try to recycle it, reuse things, and so on. My wife and I have been doing this since 1973, which is pretty long as the environmental movement goes.

About cloth napkins: why not buy them or the fabric at a garage sale if possible? My sister-in-law has been doing that since 1974.

What I'd like to see is a reduction in the amount and type of packaging. I recently bought some software which came in an 8.5 x 11 x 2 inch box with a flap that explains how wonderful it is, and all that was inside was CD, a cardboard spacer, and a postcard. Sheesh!

At the moment I'd like to recycle Peace, but I can't think of a simgle time when there wasn't war somewhere in the world.
